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.Source: Ikea

Give white dinnerware a colourful boost.
