Five stunning shades of orange

Orange is an intense, livable color that shouldn’t be relegated to just Halloween.   Orange is a blend of yellow and red that can range from the softest peach to a hot cayenne.   Research suggests that orange stimulates activity and appetite and encourages socialization.  Since it pairs beautifully with other colors it can be used to create any number of stylish iterations.
