Color Trend Alert: Hot Pink and Orange

This combination has been on my mind a lot lately, but what triggered this post was a pic of singer Remo Fernandes‘ son’s wedding. The backdrop in pink, orange and assorted ethnic colors was so arresting, that it re-ignited my color crush, and I immediately dug into my pink-orange folder to share these images that I hope will inspire your decor!

RULES!

Yes, like everything else in the world, there are a few simple rules to help you carry off that orange-pink combination better.

1. Do include at least something pink-orange (even a simple board like the one on the left) in your decor this season. It is so fashionable, and will perk up your living space like nothing else can!

2. Don’t drench your entire room in pink and orange. Oh no! That would be a disaster. Limit it to one or two accent pieces – like a wall, a single chair’s upholstery, pink-orange cushions on a neutral palette like black/white/blue…so make sure there are enough contrasting colors around to make orange-pink stand out!

Friend and blogger Reshma Sharma gets it right with her orange cushion and pink flowers in her Lucknow garden.

3. If all else fails, do dress your little girl in orange-pink – she will look adorable! :), and make her sit prettily on your neutral-colored sofa. Instant make-over!

  9. Absolutely Sharon. Can't agree more. In fact there was time when people actually thought that pink and orange together don't go well because it 'clashes' way too much. But it is glad that we have moved past the idea and there are more people adding pink and orange to their interiors.

     
  10. I love my dress. It is what i expected, very nice. This is coming from a person who normally doesn’t wear dresses. I would definitely order from this company again.
