Spring Fashion Forecast: Seven Orange Trends to Try

Orange you glad I am featuring this color?

Color of the Week is Celosia Orange by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt

Buy Celosia seeds on etsy!


The orange that is on trend this spring is a vibrant warm shade of orange, not unlike the iconic orange of the Hermes brand. The name actually comes from a plant, the orange celosia flower.

For the home

Are you looking to paint a room in your home orange? As interior decorator Markham Roberts says in House Beautiful, "It's easy to get a great orange when you're working with a skilled decorative painter doing a multilayered custom glaze job. But if you're trying to pick a ready-made color from a paint deck, I find the darker, more subdued shades work best. [BENJAMIN MOORE CORLSBUD CANYON] has great impact without looking like that garish NFL orange. I'd use it with ivory, black, and brown for a sophisticated classical look, or with cobalt blue, navy, and white if you want to go bolder, younger."
