4-7: A mood-lifting orange and red combo from Emily and Damon's Color-Infused Northwest Nest in Portland.
8: Another strong splash of orange that really defines an otherwise white and normal kitchen in Laura's Smart Dining Conversion.
9: We really like the dark orange with the black and white tiles here, in Jenni and Spencer's Small Cool 2008 entry.
10-11: Here's a bold one! Turquoise AND orange! Sandi's Happy Danish.
12: A bright orange brick wall in a yoga shala kitchen.
13-14: Usually we think that orange is a color best used in moderation, but the color of this high wall really warms the dining room and kitchen in Melinda's Colorful Quincy Loft.
15: And of course there is our recent spotlight of Meghan and Shawn's Vibrant Orange - such a bright and appealing kitchen!
16: We're really going back into the archives here, but you have to see this orange kitchen reno from Angela's Orange Crush -- the winner of the first AT kitchen contest way back in 2005.
17: How we wish we could have a closer look at this kitchen from the 3rd Fall Colors Contest! It's very orange, and very organized! The Crew Tag Boys' Balanced Energy
18: The Benjamin Moore Moroccan Spice color in this colorful Craftsman looks so warm and cozy, especially with all that wonderful wood cabinetry.
19: Yes, this kitchen from Misty in Austin is mostly blue, but we like how the orange really accents the rest of the colors.
20: There is a lot of orange going on in Lisa's Mission Abode -- between the orange cabinets and all that great Dansk cookware this might be a little much for us any other time of year, but in the gray winter it looks just right.
