The secret? Working with various hues within each of these two complementary color families. The blue included cobalt, turquoise, delft, navy. Within the orange family, corals, tangerines, grapefruits. Really rich hues, not muted. Using a combo of blue and white is like wearing a white shirt with blue jeans, or a navy blue blazer and a white shirt.
And when you feel cute, you feel better. You can channel the different moods you want with different colors. Feel like changing your frame of mind for the better? Play around with colors when picking out your clothes, makeup and accessories. Red is the hot, crazy girl of colors, evoking powerful emotions such as fear, anger and passion.
A note on choosing texture vs pattern. These two things are usually talked about together, but they are two distinct, and necessary components of design. Pattern refers to a visual print while texture is about how something feels. Make sure you incorporate both into your interiors instead of choosing one over the other. Whether you choose a throw rug to warm up your bedroom room or a wooden coffee table to bring life to your living space, the importance of texture is clear.
Link red to passion because red is the color we exhibit on our skin when interested, a red flush or blush. Rather than having your outfit scream kitten, unless that is what you are going for, the best way to rock this passion producing color and get into a frame of mind is by carrying a red clutch, donning a bright red polish on your nails, try Essie Well Red, or lining your lips in the right red.
