When it comes to mixing colors, I often look to nature for inspiration. Not always, but most of the time, what "goes" together in the natural world also "goes" together in fashion in decor. Let's think about that for a moment. . .
|Delicate peachy oranges, sunset pinks, and dark greens|
The color orange is a bit more difficult for me to place or understand because it isn't a color I see, or pay attention to at least, on a regular basis. Well. . . until I embarked on this project. Here are some examples:
|An O'ahu sunset of orange, grey, violet-grey, and dark blue|
|Various shades of orange and brown in an array of fall leaves|
|A monarch butterfly- white, black, dark orange, light orange, and white.|
|The outcome of the oxidization process- orange, brown, mint green, aqua, turquoise, and green. For more details, see www.whydoes.org/why-does-copper-oxidize, where I found this photo|
Later this week we will look at examples such as these to understand what to wear when sporting the color orange. Stay tuned!
*PS- for those of you on twitter, if you see something orange, or something that would look great with orange, please tweet about it! To share it with me, and to look at what others have found, include the hashtag #OrangeYOUStylish.
