The Color Orange

“As a blend of the raw energy and physicality of Red, and the sheer happiness of Yellow, Orange is truly the color of joy, interaction, creativity and playfulness.” Orange is the color of autumn, Halloween and pumpkins. It is the color of sunrises and new beginnings. And we must not forget, orange is the color of the San Francisco Giants! Go Giants!

Crushing on Coral

The color coral brings a smile to my face and happiness to my heart. Coral says spring is here and summer days are just around the corner. It’s a combo of orange and pink. It’s feminine. It’s a color in sunsets. It’s fun & vibrant!

Pink + Orange: Instant Happiness

I have mixed thoughts about pink. It is not my favorite color, nor has it ever been. When I think of “pink” I think of fairy godmothers, princesses and Pepto Bismol. I do love fuchsia, but that’s not really pink, is it? Okay, where is this going? While shopping for a client I came across a pink & orange fabric. I was instantly inspired & felt happy. Colors effect everyone differently and apparently pink & orange is my happy place. Together the colors are fun, fresh, vibrant and playful. The color combo reminds me of summer days, Hawaii, backyard BBQ’s and watermelon. Instant happiness.

Some images to brighten your day…

Blue oh Blue

I love blue. It is the color of the sky, the color of the ocean and the color of my eyes. Even more than blue, I love fabric shopping and pulling together new color schemes. I rarely find myself creating blue color stories, but I came across this color the other day that stopped me in my tracks. It was a beautiful cobalt blue.  I just stood there and stared at the fabric wing. The color was amazing.  I instantly fell in love. Blue oh blue, I’m back in love with you!

I am Turquoise

What color are you??? Please do share…

I was recently told by a friend I would be turquoise. I would have to agree. Of course I would have to be a mix because I could not possibly choose between a primary or secondary color. Nope, no way. I’m a beautiful combination of them both. A mix of blue and green.

And don’t forget to let me know what color you are and why

Special thanks to MC for the inspiration for the post idea. You are forever my yellow. xoxoxo.

“Grey” Obsession

The color gray and the show Grey’s Anatomy are two of my obsessions.  Yup, I admitted, don’t judge me. So let’s celebrate the start of season 8 with gray…
