Color Inspirations – Dust & Tangerine

Turn bright colors regal with the addition of soft greys in this Dust & Tangerine color inspiration for your embroidery designs.

Bright, warm colors often bring to mind sunny days and new beginnings, and often they can be a bit too bold or bright for a sophisticated design. However, with the addition of a just simple, soft grey, the bright colors of the day get the the addition of the weight of time. Like a once-splendid dress now sitting worn in the attic, setting warm tangerine oranges and pinks on a dusty background gives them a sense of history, and adds an unexpected regal character that wasn’t there before. See how it compares to the original.
