Splash of Orange

My favorite color combo right now: Aqua and orange. There’s something so refreshing about that cool shade of blue pumped up with a citrus-y accent. ICI Paints included several different combinations in their palettes for 2009/2010.  You can get many looks with the pairing: sea mist plus coral is sweet; robin’s egg and coral are a little bolder; and teal and russet take on a retro-ethnic feel.
