FRESHLY-SQUEEZED ORANGE? Yes, please! If you have a taste for this juicy citrus hue, you’re likely to have a high-octane personality with an optimistic outlook. Sociable and – let’s face it – a bit of a show-off, you radiate warmth and inspire others with your enthusiasm and free-spirit. Orange is commonly associated with spontaneity and risk-taking, so it’s fair to say that you’re in your element when about to embark on a new adventure. It’s great to be the life of the party but be mindful of keeping those egotistical and competitive characteristics in check.
HOT AND COLD CONTRAST
As mentioned in our Tranquil Blue post, orange and blue are complementary colours – they sit opposite one another on the colour wheel – and boy does this cracking combination make a dream team! Cool blue finds the perfect counterbalance in warm, energising orange and together they are a dynamic duo. Try a contrast of light aqua blue and deep pumpkin or experiment with the on-trend contrast of lively coral and classic navy.
