Orange Dream

Orange is next on the HVE US Color Bar.

Did you know that orange is the national color of The Netherlands, Hester's homeland? The Dutch take their orange very seriously, and of course, it is one of Hester's brand colors.

Orange is a secondary color, resulting from the combination of red and yellow. It reflects the energy of red and the happiness of yellow.

Fun and flamboyant, orange radiates excitement, warmth and enthusiasm. It encourages socialization, stimulates activity and is strong and friendly. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange also represents fascination, creativity, determination, attraction, success and encouragement.

Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity.

Maybe that explains my reaction to these amazing cashmere-lined driving gloves?!! They are so buttery soft. Love.

And congratulations to a shade of orange for being the Pantone color of the year--Tangerine Tango.

Orange is also one of the most polarizing colors, people either love it or hate it. What do you think? Do you love orange? I'd love to hear your opinions! -Debby
