Delectable Duet: Pink + Orange

In October, thoughts turn to orange
with Halloween not so far away.
But orange has many best colour friends: one of which is pink.
The warm glow of orange + the cheeky frivolous nature of pink
make one of the most delectable of all colour duets.
I love using these colours in landscape design, 
because they glow in the early evening light,
with a luminous intensity. 
Amanda Nisbet has used the jolly vibe created by pink + orange
in this happy and not-so-serious bathroom design.
And she has used the same colours
to add sophistication & glamour
to an otherwise-neutral living room.
Perhaps not for everyone a pink kitchen!
This is a blast from the past. 
But the bright and cheerful colours of the 1950s
can teach us a thing or two about colour blocking.
Hand crocheted copper wire light shades in pink & orange
from Yoola combine bright colour with a rustic texture.
And this image, from 1959,
(in an out-take from Harper's Bazaar)
shows that pink + orange can be a glamourous,
as well as delectable, colour duet.
