Color Craze: Persimmon Orange and Majolica Blue

Color Craze: Persimmon Orange and Majolica BlueWe have a tendency to limit ourselves to colors that so-called "authorities" have deemed appropriate for a specific season. And when we do, we deprive ourselves of the joy of having all of the beautiful hues that we can visualize available to us all year round. That's not living a truly color-filled life and seems rather boring. While it's true that we are on the cusp of Fall and Orange is well known for being a traditional color for the season, few people wear it as freely as they may in warmer months when it is a bright, cheery, citrus-y symbol of the carefree life. Well, don't you want to be carefree in November too? I know that wearing Orange head-to-toe may be, uh...aggressive for some but when you add a rich blue in a light to dark shade to the mix, you get a wearable combination that can be mixed and matched regardless of the time of year.

Orange and Navy Blue Leather

For this week's Color Craze, I chose Persimmon because it is on the subtler side of the Orange spectrum and avoids smacking you in the face with it's vibrancy. I've coupled it with the deep, smooth Majolica Blue for a little softening of the slight edge that Persimmon may evoke. I feel it's a special pairing for everyday looks. Ask the New York Mets or the Syracuse University Orange!

COLORFUL ENLIGHTENMENT: Persimmons are a fruit that is often compared to apples nutritionally. Majolica is tin-glazed pottery made in England and decorated in colors, like this blue, on a white background.

COLORFUL SIDEBAR: Kindly indulge my ongoing obsession with Smoothies and allow me to share my first Fall recipe find with you. The Spiced Persimmon Smoothie is at the top of my list for Fall breakfasts. This fruit wasn't on my Top 10 list of ingredients until I discovered the recipe below from one of my favorite food bloggers, Lisa of Downshiftology. It meets all of my smoothie standards: easy to make, filled with flavor and of course, stacked with healthy goodness. Click here for the tasty recipe!

Color Craze: Tomato and Jasmine Green

 

On the color wheel, red and green are direct opposites, but opposites can attract and come together in a fierce partnership. That’s what my latest Color Craze, Tomato and Jasmine Green have done dramatically.

This color combo is a natural pairing for a pleasing lunch or dinner plate. Who doesn't love a crisp, green salad sprinkled with freshly sliced vine-ripened tomatoes? OK, maybe you're not a fan of the veggies but seeing these eye-catching colors at a meal are aptly appetizing. And of course I found an easy recipe for a scrumptious tomato salad (below) that can be put together in 10 minutes and served the next day! You can find the details here.

Olive Oil and Sangria

Olive Oil and Sangria

a savory, sumptuous color duo that's decadent, rich and full of flavor. 

Color Craze: Olive Oil and Sangria - Painting by Unknown ArtistBenjamin Moore Paints show you just how grand this color combo can be when used in a small space. the left side of the image below looks like a one piece sitting/wall unit but it is actually a clever use of their paint color, Vintage Wine and strategically placed shelving and antiqued clothing hooks highlighted by Olive Tree walls.

the right side of the image creatively illustrates an eclectic use of furniture and accessories in the complementary colors to form a sophisticated reading space.

food is not only nourishment for our bodies and taste buds but when created artfully, it can be appealing to the eye as well. i felt like I'd been tapped by a magic wand when I came across the food styling and photographic artistry in colors much like our duo of Aimee Twigger of Twigg Studios in the UK. her recipe for the Earl Grey Ice Cream captured below is equally divine too! the Twigg Studios Instagram page smolders!
