Colour-Coded Inspiration: Orange

By Marica

About.com has excellent descriptions of colour and the feelings and emotion specific colours invokes. This is what they had to say about Orange (I find it quite accurate):

“Orange is vibrant, flamboyant & energetic. It denotes energy, warmth, and the sun. But orange has a bit less intensity or aggression than red, calmed by the cheerfulness of yellow. As a warm color orange is a stimulant — stimulating the emotions and even the appetite. Orange can be found in nature in the changing leaves of fall, the setting sun, and the skin and meat of citrus fruit. It represents the changing seasons so in that sense it is a color on the edge, the color of change between the heat of summer and the cool of winter. Because orange is also a citrus color, it can conjure up thoughts of vitamin C and good health.”

A good colour to pair with orange is a nice cooling blue, like this turquoise-y blue we used below. Now the orange really pops. It can be really refreshing, don’t be afraid to use it. Here is some Orange beauties to inspire you…
