Color Spotlight: Orange with Blue

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

It’s raining again  today, grrrr, and I can’t take it anymore !  I crave sunshine, I need warmth, I’m dying to put my winter clothes away permanently for the next six months.  Why won’t this weather cooperate hmmmm ????

In contrast with these gloomy April showers, today I’m craving orange, especially tangerine, persimmon, and burnt orange mixed with all shades of blue from indigo to teal.  The combination in so fresh, so invigorating, so cheerful, so inviting.

And oh so complementary !

Here are some of my favorite spaces featuring blue and orange:

Doesn’t orange and blue work so well with crisp white ?  I’m so inspired by this classic color combination, I must add some more orange to the (in progress) blue and white boy’s room.  

Want to add some pops of orange and blue to your living space ?
