"Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions."Color. There are only five primary colors, and yet hundreds of hues and combinations, each of which affect our emotions differently.
Color has to hit you right and of course, it is a decision that is made with the entire environment in mind. But still, I find myself going in phases with color combinations. Take, for instance, this recent event produced by AOO Events . A really simply affair, but sometimes the most difficult. Everything has to be just right. This is where an interesting color combination comes into play.
At the moment I'm obsessed with orange and blue together. In flowers, orange is an easy color to access. Not so much with blue. In this case, I brought it in through votive candles. And the linen also has a blue iridescent hue, which doesn't show up well in the photos but was a subtle presence on this tabletop design.
The flowers used -- orchids, pin cushions, rosettes and succulents -- have modern lines.
We raised the centerpiece on a metallic base to allow us to add some more details under the piece itself. Plus, I think it helped show off all elements in the arrangement, such as the succulents near the bottom. Given the other flowers, these were unexpected, yet really worked.
