We typically think of wonderfully theatrical and sociable orange as linked to heat and warmth, however there is also the inevitable association of orange to the time of harvest and falling leaves which we associate with earthy warmth as well as the lighter and less intense apricot and peach tones whose message is one of soft warmth. These less vibrant orange tones contain the same life force as their brighter orange counterparts, but because of their more modest appearance are perceived by some to be less overwhelming and more inviting. A highly suggestive color when it comes to food, orange in all of its tints and tones, is a known appetite stimulant, exerting a measurable effect on the autonomic nervous system.
With the demand for orange continuing to grow, we expanded our range of oranges. In the 210 new additions to our PANTONE FASHION, HOME + INTERIORS palette we have added many different variations of this versatile and convivial shade including hot and radiant orange tones such as Dragon Fire and Exotic Orange, an assortment of spicy shades with greater color depth including Aura Orange and Chili Oil, more toned down hues suffused with brown with names like Honey Ginger and Spice Route, a greater variety of golden oranges, i.e. Mango Mojito and Autumn Blaze and some more coral influenced hues like Blooming Dahlia and Peach Echo.
