Orange and Black Interiors

Because it's Halloween weekend, I wanted to post an array of interiors that showcased the orange and black theme. I love these two colors together - how whimsical and fun! Have a safe and happy weekend, my whimsies. See you back here on Monday.

Crown & a kid in a candy store

I first learned of the rainbow, candy color-coated tea shoppe, called Crown & Crumpet, while perusing one of my favorite decorating magazines, and ever since that first sighting I have been dreaming of taking a trip to San Francisco and visiting this colorful paradise. I think when I first walk into this whimsical store it will be like walking into a fairytale or a candy store {or both mixed into one} that has all my favorite goodies and then some! And, in that fairytale or candy store, I am allowed to have as many tea parties and as much candy as my heart desires! Tea anyone! These whimsical photos are courtesy of MadeByGirl.
