Orange can be zesty, energetic and intense, when the colour is fully saturated, or used as a main colour for a scheme. But there are other ways to use orange. Orange can also create a much less intense, warming and balanced effect. Our Shell Beach Rug and Shell Beach Scarf uses softer tones of orange paired with complimentary blue shades. The transitional use of the brighter orange fading into pastels, then blues, creates a beautiful balance.
The way we see and respond to any colour, is in response to the overall effect created by the full range of colours that we are seeing, not each colour in isolation. So the brighter orange in centre of this rug is 'seen' in combination with the softer orange tones, and the blue shades that complete the design, resulting in a very different personal response to that created by an intense single colour accessory in bright orange.
