Orange is a stimulating color that can be associated with health, energy, warmth, appetite, fire, strength, joy, etc... It has very positive vibrations that tend to make us feel well and happy.

A wide variety of oranges (the color) exist, especially when it comes to what can be eaten. It seems that we all appreciate the food items that are particularly colorful and flamboyant, thus we are attracted to them. Who can be impassible or marble-like when confronted to a pumpkin, an orange, an apricot, a mango, cheddar cheese, a carrot, a melon, a bell pepper, sweet potatoes, curcuma, ...? Nobody!

Let's not forget that except the fact that this wonderful color is vibrant and pleasurable to look at, antioxidants abund in all vegetables and fruits that are orange. Is it the reason why nature made the most healthy food radiate and glow in such a powerful way? To attract us?...

  7. C'est beau et c'est vrai que le orange est une couleur éclatante très dynamisante!

  8. Orange is one of those colors that is oh so seductive on food, but not so much on clothes. Not that I mind, I'd much rather eat my colors than wear them!

    CHRIS: Merci! Tout à fait..

    ARI: I share the same opinion. It is not always very flattering as it's just too flashy, but I don't mind that color when it's in my plate ;-P...
