Picture the deep red-orange colour of coral. Not a bright orange, but veering towards the browner side of the orange spectrum.
This gorgeous colour could be paired with browns of all intensities – from chocolate to mid-brown to taupe, add a touch of turquoise. With greys from charcoal to pale grey. With grey greens and sage greens – think the colour of lichens, succulents. With deep olive greens, lighter olive greens.
With touches of black – perhaps white or off-white, coral orange and small touches of black.With multiple shades of the orange spectrum – from shell pink to a spicey brown pink to a pumpkin coloured orange, peach or a mustardy turmeric colour. Cool down with olive or sage green. Try a scheme of coral orange, turmeric ochre, and touches of rich burgundy and olive.
