Nothing wrong with flamboyant

You can take any boring space, 
add some small pops of orange
and the room magically appears alive and fun.

In marketing, where the psychology of colors plays a big role in advertising...

orange is described as the most flamboyant color in the planet...
associated with fun times...

happy and energetic days, warmth 
and organic products.

It is also associated with ambition

No wonder I love this particular color so much.

What's your take on orange?

  5. I love this post Silvia, as much as I love orange. I love the warm undertones of orange especially when mixed with yellow and green and blue. Our house is decorated along that matter where we live, which country we move to....I can always count on that orange to carry me thru!
