TANGERINE, a variation of the colour ORANGE, denotes JOY



Touches of TANGERINE infuse warmth and life into any décor. When mixed with natural hues like Olive Green or Brown, it helps create a nature-inspired ambience.
Tangerine with pink however creates a rather psychedelic effect!!

(This Tribal-Design necklace of Ivory beads in a brown leather string came in this bright carry bag. Mummy assures us neither the Ivory nor the Leather is real.)

Many personality tests define people who like TANGERINE (and various other shades of ORANGE for that matter) as friendly and affable, perhaps because this shade is said to rouse cheerful and exuberant emotional reactions.

It is also said to promote appetite which is probably why it is abundantly used in restaurants, usually in combination with RED (We are thinking of KFC!!)
TANGERINE is a tertiary colour, the primary ones being RED, GREEN and BLUE.

Mom was very happy to hear what you had to say about people who like tangerine - she loves the color, the fruit, and especially the fruit bars she devours. You have so many beautiful tangerine items it is hard to pick a favorite. We really like that papier mache balloon but then we think we might like those treats too:)

Lola said...

I loved your tangerine things. Tangerine is really a shade of orange, isn't it? But it sounds like a much prettier color, therefore it is. At least that's what I think.

wags, Lola
