Orange

Orange lies mid way between red and yellow. The word comes from the Arabic word narange meaning orange, and before the arrival of the fruit there was no European word for orange, the closest being tan gold and tawny. And youíve never seen an orange owl have you?

"Orange mmm. Well I like it but to be honest I wouldnít use too much of it on large areas, a little here and there goes a long way. Too stimulating for me. Great used in kitchens dining areas and playrooms."

 

But softened into the peach tones itís easy to use. As are all the pastel shades. The browns and terra cottas are in here too of course and then thereís copper bronze and gold.

 

 

 

The stronger shades, great again in studies and dens, the pastels anywhere really. spice them up with splashes of hot and bright, keep them serene with cool creams and sweeten with  the contrasting pastels.

 

You never hear any negative associations with orange. No orange in the face, or orange with envy. Orange is considered a joyful colour and one that enlivens.

 

 

Orange stories:

"I once hennaed my hair after a bad perm and it turned bright orange before turning into matted straw and having to be cut into the wood."

"Sorry thatís the best I can do at the minute. Can you help?"
