Photo Gallery: Turquoise & Orange Accents

As the weather gets warmer, this power pairing has been popping up all over the place (senior designer Sarah Hartill used this paint colour combination as inspiration for the colour story in our June 2014 issue). Located on opposite sides of the colour wheel, the intensity of these brights is a perfect match that generates an electric energy. We round up a few products that demonstrate the appeal of fiery orange and tranquil turquoise.

  • PS 2014 Storage Unit

    Ikea's designer capsule collection includes turquoise and orange.

    Designers Theo Richardson, Charles Brill and Alexander Williams were inspired by dim sum boxes when they created this multi-coloured storage unit for Ikea. The shape and retro colours of this unit harken back to turquoise and orange's heyday in the 1960s.

  • Mango Wood Guardian Set

    Colourful, geometric sculptures from CB2.

    When paired with neon yellow and natural wood, turquoise and orange look bolder than they do on their own. This sculpture set from CB2 adds instant impact to any mantel or shelf vignette.

  • Nautical Flag Sheet Set

  • Striped Terracotta Pot

    Place plants in an earthy West Elm planter.

    Keep small items organized or display as art.

    A abstracted turquoise feather motif a trend from our March 2014 issue and orange starburst pop against a hippie chic tie-dyed placemat from CB2. A placemat is an easy way to update a tablescape by incorporating the boldness of these two shades.
