<br><br>They are right 'on trend'.<br><br>Sheesh, aren't you up on your Pantone Color Forecasts? <br><br>Orange<br><br>A perfect example of how a discredited color can make a comeback, bright pure orange was for years seen as the color of cheapness and fast-food. Burnt, brownish oranges were seen as the color of your grandma's carpet from the early seventies. Orange was seen as an unflattering, difficult, weird color.<br><br>Of course, orange became so thoroughly despised that it was ripe for a comeback. In the last few years, orange has come to be seen as youthful, hip, and edgy. It is an urban, high-tech color. Like yellow, it is hot and bright and attention-getting. Orange is commonly used for safety equipment and signs, and is another color that can easily be overstimulating. Pumpkin shades, and brown-orange shades, are associated with autumn. In Feng Shui, orange is yang, an earth color, and associated with concentration and organization. Orange is the second chakra, Svadhisthana, and is associated with sexuality.<br><br>(However I *don't* think this means Oompah-Loompahs are sexy...)<br><br><br>
