Shades of Soft Orange

My theme for this month is the gentle luminosity of the colour orange. I felt that it would be a lovely subject for my Etsy Showcase. The lightest and most delicate of all the orange shades are the pastels. Delightful light colours of orange such as Peach, Apricot, Papaya Whip, Persian Orange, Salmon and Coral are most delicately refreshing and pleasing colours that will compliment your wardrobe or décor.

Orange and peach are popular colours for weddings because of the joyful and sweet feelings they convey and also because a swathe of a delicate light apricot fabric similar to a chiffon can be a really superb look. While Peach is soft, sunny and warm, a softer peach shade that contains more white is considered to hold more feminine significance.

“You are, self-oriented and impatient. You are also independent, an organiser and self-motivated. Orange is the colour of practicality and creativity. Your energy levels are high, and you are sometimes restless. You have a forceful will and tend to be active and competitive. You are also excitable and can seek domination over the others. “

I mostly agree with this quote from the internet and also can appreciate another quote that states.
“Peach roses send a message of appreciation or gratitude and are also often sent as an expression of sympathy.”
