Color Combination Pink and Yellow-Orange

I just love this image and the caption “Mon Amour.”  Have you ever seen a wine bottle look this sexy?  I don’t think I ever have.

While clearly what lies beneath the soft pink wrap is a bottle it is so provocative that the ad might as well be a photograph of a sexy, sultry model or movie star. The simple and elegant buttoned up version has a classic, never go out of style look that reminds me of the wide-eyed and always alluring Audrey Hepburn. While the low cut, half unzipped pose is as tasteful and tantalizing as the Italian beauty Sophia Loren. Veuve Clicquot sure knows how to give their products Super Star appeal!

I especially love how the color palette speaks to both sides of ‘sexy'; the soft pink (a hue perfect to represent rose champagne) is so feminine, delicate and demure and the yellow-orange (the signature color of Veuve Clicquot) is warm, open and catches attention without being too brazen.

My first thought was, “Wow, how perfect this color combination is on so many levels” As I gave it more thought however I believe it actually goes much deeper than that. The hues the company used is a perfectly proportioned color scheme sure to capture any man or woman’s attention.  It is a combination that invites woman to be comfortable with the sensuality of the images and I suspect sparks something in our subconscious that connects buying Veuve Clicquot Rose to us being as desirable as the bottle in its elegant Ice Dress. I don’t know about you but I’m ready to run out and buy a bottle.

I’m also ready to completely surround myself with this combination so I started hunting for other examples of this alluring color combination.

Martha Stewart seems to be as taken with this combination as I am.  Here she shows it in a mix of candy she recommends for wedding favors.

And for serving pieces.  Being partial to tabletop china, pottery and glassware I love the shape and colors of these pieces.

Go with a brighter pink and yellow-orange color scheme to create a joyful combination for a baby shower.

Pink and yellow-orange is a creative color combination for an Autumn table, don’t you think?

A yellow-orange and pink scheme is a natural for anything that includes gerber daisies like these favor boxes.

This color combination makes for a festive party.

These wide stripes are a bold edition to this home.

The bright combination looks young and playful in an uneven striped wall that includes both yellow-orange and orange.

A girl’s bedroom in a San Francisco home is pink with accents of yellow-orange to counteracts
the gray and foggy light of the city. “Pink is warmer and more enveloping,” designer Stephen Shubel says.

How would you use the color combination pink and yellow-orange?

    Welcome to Pink Saturday! Your site is certainly full of wonderful colors and stunning decorative ideas. It is quite an advertising ‘hook’…color and suggestion. Would be interesting to do a ‘gender flip side’. Hmmmmm….the guys might like pink, too!

  4. Welcome too! I love the color combination above too-especially with the gerber daisies!! I’ll have to check out your other posts-I love all colors! Happy pink week!!

  5. Glad you joined us for Pink Saturday. You jumped right in with all your lovely pinks. They all are great and I enjoyed seeing them.

  6. Great pinks – Welcome to Pink Saturday

  7. Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie…
    I so love this post. Your pinks are just devine. I love the champagne bottle.
    I would like the bottle just to set around because it looks so absolutely
    devine. I love the cover, and yes I agree, it would be a dead ringer for an
    Audrey Hepburn.

    The candies and flowers compliments of Martha are always so exciting. I do so
    love her decor. I love reading her magazine. Some of the things aren’t me, but
    sometimes I find that extra little bit of punch I am looking for.

    Glad you joined us for Pink Saturday. It is so fun in “Pinkie Land”. Please stop by
    and say hi. I would so love the company, and I am having a give away that I would be
    honored to have you sign up for.

    Country hugs sweetie…Sherry

  12. Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Kate. I am so glad you decided to participate. Great post!

    I’ll give you something to laugh about. I vote that it is yellow – not orange. Everyone is always surprised to learn that yellow is my favorite color. I love combining shades of yellow, pinks, navy and green.

  13. Welcome to Pink Saturday. Your post is wonderful. Love the color combinations.

    Happy Pink Saturday

I look forward to what you’ll share next week. ~ Sarah

  20. I love these warm sensual colors! So alluring and playful at the same time. I also love how you can take this color combination from fun and adventurous (girl’s bedroom) to quiet and sophisticated (Domino Magazine living room). Thanks for bringing this beautiful color combination out into the spotlight. Now to go open some bubbly.

  21. Interesting .about 4 months ago ,i had a picture to frame ,the original watercolor was a small bouquet of pink roses with lime green feuillage with a so small barely seen hint of a yellow gold color,so after some taught and vizualizing the whole thing ,i decide to go with a large mat in yellow gold color with a white frame,and i must say that it is striking and cannot take your eyes away from it because of the combination of those colors,wild and exciting combos,i just love it because it is unusual as color look like those color on “La Veuve Clicquot”,by the way champagne is my favorite drink….

  22. i love the color
