Hue Knew: Citrus Zing Inspires Perky Color Schemes

This week I’m working on a super secret holiday project that I can’t wait to share with you.  It includes using perky, zingy citrus colors in unusual ways.  In fact, I’m putting slices of a few of my favorite citrus fruits in the oven.
Why, you ask? That part’s a secret.  Aside from making my kitchen smell incredible, snapping a few Instagram photos of my work with fruits, it reminded me how fresh and fun citrus colors can be together.  I love how you can take one color, like orange, and use shades of it to create a beautiful range of saturated versions. This works great if you want to dip a toe into designing a space with vibrant colors. You don’t have to use a color at its’ full vibrancy everywhere to get an impact. Little pops of a bright color, in combination with more muted shades and tones, can transform a boring room instantly.
