Knock Knock

Knock Knock!
Who's there?
Orange who?
Orange ya glad to see me?

This week I look at the colour Orange.
Orange is energy and happiness. To me it represents sunrise and Halloween.  It is usually associated with joy and is representative of enthusiasm, fascination, creativity, determination, success and stimulation.

As orange is part of the red spectrum it can give you the sensation of heat, but because it is also part of the yellow spectrum it is a heat without aggression.
They say that orange increases the oxygen supply to the brain and therefore stimulates mental activity. It also stimulates the appetite similar to red.

It is a great accent colour in clothing and jewelry. It is a colour that represents autumn (fall).
In heraldry is a symbol of strength and endurance. There are 9 countries with the colour orange in their flag.

Dark orange can indicate deceit and distrust.
Red-Orange associates with desire, passion and pleasure, domination and a thirst for action

Here are some of the orange things in Adiesdesigns on Etsy.
