This combination has been on my mind a lot lately, but what triggered this post was a pic of singer Remo Fernandes' son's wedding. The backdrop in pink, orange and assorted ethnic colors was so arresting, that it re-ignited my color crush, and I immediately dug into my pink-orange folder to share these images that I hope will inspire your decor!

Yes, like everything else in the world, there are a few simple rules to help you carry off that orange-pink combination better.
1Do include at least something pink-orange (even a simple board like the one on the left) in your decor this season. It is so fashionable, and will perk up your living space like nothing else can!

2 Don't drench
your entire room in pink and orange. Oh no! That would be a disaster.
Limit it to one or two accent pieces - like a wall, a single chair's
upholstery, pink-orange cushions on a neutral palette like black/ white/
blue...so make sure there are enough contrasting colors around to make
orange-pink stand out!
Friend and blogger Reshma Sharma gets it right with her orange cushion and pink flowers in her Lucknow garden.
3 If all else fails, do dress your little girl in orange-pink - she will look adorable! :), and make her sit prettily on your neutral-colored sofa. Instant make-over!
