Colour combination: Orange and Pink (ethnic trend)

Introducing global influences into a room is all about finding the right balance of colour. A bold palette is key, but playing with unconventional colour combinations is even more important. Rather than looking at opposing colours, try pairing shades that are closer to one another on the colour wheel.

Orange and pink – while not obvious choices – are perfect colour matches. Inspired by sumptuous Indian fabrics, the combination of two bright, warm colours creates a fun and playful palette.

That being said, too many similar colours can create a lack of contrast. Be sure to introduce a supporting colour (along with black, white and grey) as an accent. We’ve found that gold, brassy tones lend themselves perfectly to an otherwise loud colour scheme.
