Perfect 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. rose-03

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.

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”  My next thought was that this is a combo sure to capture any man’s attention.  As I gave it more thought however I believe it actually goes much deeper than that.

Veuve Clicquot Rose

This combination invites woman to be comfortable with the sensuality of the images and I suspect sparks something in our subconscious that makes us feel like buying Veuve Clicquot Rose will make us as desirable as the bottle in the 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.rose-06

In her suggestions for flowers


And for serving pieces.  Being partial to tabletop china, pottery and glassware I love the shape and colors of these pieces.  I want them all!rose-08

This inviting room showing the softer side of this color combination is from Domino magazine.  I could easily spend a few hours on that sofa with a good book and cup of tea.

I found these framed vintage textiles on  I think my aunt might have owned that geometric scarf or one very much like it back in the day.

A brighter take of the yellow-orange and pink scheme is a natural for anything that includes gerber daisys including these favor boxes from Daisy Days.

rose-14Another bright combination looks young and playful in this bedding from Neiman Marcus.  It brings in a bit of red with the pink, and yellow-orange plus has a very trending “never seen in nature’ pink and white zebra stripes fabric for the bed skirt.

    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!

    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

    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.

    This is one of the best Pink Post I’ve ever seen. It is so clomplete and so clever! Great job. Welcome to Pink Saturday! Veuve Clicquot is definitely one of my favorite champagnes, but I hadn’t seen this add. This is terrific. Thanks for joining in the fun of Pink Saturday. I look forward to what you’ll share next week. ~ Sarah

    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 (Neiman Marcus 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.

    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….
