Midday Muse: Kate Walsh's Fiery Orange Walls

Midday Muse: Kate Walsh's Fiery Orange Walls

I never thought I'd care about "Grey's Anatomy" star Kate Walsh's house. That is, until I saw this wonderful photo of her living room in the Spring 2007 issue of O at Home. I love the contrast of the plush blue couch against the bright orange walls.

I like this! We painted bright colors on the walls of our house - each room a different color, which helps a smaller house look larger and more interesting. No orange here though...hummm, something to think about!

I like it. May not have the guts to do it, but it really does look nice. Kudos.

I love the couch but HATE the walls. Orange is too bright for me. It would work a lot better if I lived in a warmer climate.

My mom has the issue this is from and the rest of her house is gorgeous!!! Her bedroom is the perfect shade of apple green. Her home is pretty much my dream home. I especially love the black lacquered moldings. She said in the article that they painted them black in one room, but she loved it so much it's now all over the house.

I love it! She's unafraid of color and I love it! She ain't the first person to paint the walls in her house that shade of orange. My grandmother did back in 1973, and her kitchen had that same color, and no she wasn't the first either. There were probably others too.

I hate it, but I think it's awesome that she knows her unique style and uses it rather than decorate her home like everyone else's.

I love the orange walls, but I'm not a fan of the blue couch. In the room or anywhere, really. Just not a fan of the couch, I guess.

Never in a million years would I have thought orange walls would be appealing, but this is great! Love the couch, too.

I like the orange walls, but not with the blue couch. When I was younger my Mom's room had orange walls and her bedding was, I'm having a bit of an 80's flash back, I suppose!

The only thing I don't like is the design on the square pillows. I'm not sure what would look better, but I don't think they flow.

Actually, it looks awesome for somebody whose taste is eclectic. However, I wouldn't want that color on my walls and of course, never to be matched with a big accent of blue. It's just not "me" nor "us". My husband and I are both creative people and although want something refreshing around the house, the color -como of blue and orange is just not "us" But I absolutely love the throw pillows.

I love it! I wish I could do something like that in my house (we move too often to be painting over and over again).

LOVE it! It looks like an Hermes box, especially with the chocolate brown wood trim.

I don't mind it but I'd rather see a spicier orange like a pumpkin color.

I agree with gruaig_rua. Orange is such a strong, vibrant color. It makes a better accent color (which is probably what I should have mentioned in my earlier post...)

Love the color. I never thought a true orange color like this would look good on walls. I'm more of a rust orange fan. The colors of her furniture work well to compliment the space.

I love it. The colors are great together. I wish my house could look that nice.
