Orange Ya Glad?

Sunday, April 21, 2013

What comes to mind when you think of orange? Refreshing? Citrus? Vibrant? Energy? Sunshine? Those are all words that pop up for me, when I think of this fun and fabulous color. I love the flavor of a juicy orange, and recently, I'm loving the way this color makes me feel... glad. And the beauty of orange is that it's all seasonal. It looks great in the cooler weather when paired with browns and beiges, and wonderfully refreshing in the warmer weather when paired with white and other summery colors. But one of the best colors to pair with orange is blue, because it's on the opposite side of the color wheel, thus creating what is known to be color vibration. Complimentary colors are the most appealing and stimulating to the eye, as seen below on this fabulous outfit worn by my one of my favorite fashionistas, Olivia Palermo:
See? Aren't YOU glad?

...and go ahead and set your Shavuos table with this exciting color combo as well...I just may!
