And here it is with a flash. It's called Knockout Orange from sherwin williams.
I'm going to make new curtains for the sliding glass door - i just ordered the fabric and lining. It's this:
gosh, that color looks off on my computer too! the color is called aquarius, and it's a dark teal blue/peacock. It will look great with the orange. In the living room we're going to do a light blue wall color and a similar print (from the same fabric line) but in a citrus/yellow-green. Actually, the fabric I covered the chairs in below is the color that the living room curtains will be, but the print of the dining room curtains - see how it'll all flow together?! the print on the chairs is half the size of the curtain print though - so it's a different scale. I found that vintage table cloth ages ago and it just happens to fit the table! thank god i didn't cut it up, which was my plan!
And on Friday evening I finished the stockings for us! yay!!
