I've Got A Theory

Orange you glad it's the weekend!



These orange lilies are my fave flower! I love seeing them beside our country roads! Here is some orange color theory for ya...



Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.





To the human eye, orange is a very hot color, so it gives the sensation of heat. Nevertheless, orange is not as aggressive as red. Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity. It is highly accepted among young people. As a citrus color, orange is associated with healthy food and stimulates appetite. Orange is the color of fall and harvest. In heraldry, orange is symbolic of strength and endurance.





Orange has very high visibility, so you can use it to catch attention and highlight the most important elements of your design. Orange is very effective for promoting food products and toys.





Dark orange can mean deceit and distrust.




Red-orange corresponds to desire, sexual passion, pleasure, domination, aggression, and thirst for action.




Gold evokes the feeling of prestige. The meaning of gold is illumination, wisdom, and wealth. Gold often symbolizes high quality.

I have become very fond of orange lately, I didn't know why, but now I do!

I would have to say my favorite jelly belly would be the licorice one!

Debbie Pearson said...

It would not be orange cantaloupe, but it might very well just be the citrus orange one. I really like them and cherry flavored beans.

Jan said...

I love orange and Fall time.

I like anything coconut.

I actually love orange, and an earthy orange with brown undertones actually looks good on me. My favorite Jelly? Toasted Marshmallow! Mmmmm... now I gotta stop by the candy shop at the mall to get a bag-ful. Wish I could share with you! ;-)

Debbie said...

Jelly Bellies are so good. My mom just gave my kids the soft drink flavored ones and they were great!

OceanDreams said...

I think orange gets ignored WAY too much! Oh gosh, not a huge fan of jelly bellies (I know that is prob a sin) but it would probably be chocolate something or other. Hope you had a great weekend!

Kado! said...
