Great Color Combos: Pink & Orange
February 18, 2016 § Leave a comment
One glance at Taylor Swift’s Grammy red carpet ensemble and I was inspired. What a great color combo! Reminiscent of gorgeous summer sunsets and gardens of spring tulips, hot pink and vibrant coral scream happiness and passion. No shyness there. That’s for sure.
You can bring those colors into your home. Here’s how:
–Add plenty of white. Nothing brings out the true color of anything better than white. That’s why adding white flowers to a garden landscape makes the color in the garden “pop” (as we say).
–Mix colors of the same Hue (color) Value (relative lightness or darkness). They will blend better together without one overtaking the other.
–Add plenty of neutral texture. Sisal rugs, nubby neutral chenille pillows, and natural (neutral) linen-like window panels will balance the powerful color statement in the room and cool the temperature down a bit.
–Go part-way in. To make a major color statement without a huge commitment, stay completely neutral in the paint, furniture, rugs, and windows and add color with your accessories: art, pillows, lamp bases, and other accessories.
Look for other great color combos in fashion and nature. Find what you love!
