Color Chips: Orange and Teal

Color Chips: Orange and Teal

We spotted these two hanging out together on Church Street a few weeks back, just aching for someone to take their picture. We know a lot of people would be hesitant to work with two super-saturated colors like bright orange and teal in a home; it's definitely a statement...

But we think a home with a minimalist aesthetic and mainly white background would be able to showcase this duo without letting them overwhelm.

Though they may seem disparate, we've seen orange and teal work well together in many a beach sunset. And, although more muted in this image, Rousseau's work often featured the two colors in harmony.
