“The thing about orange is that it’s not just a color, but a food and a fragrance.  It’s the only color you can taste and smell,” Stephanie Greenwood, Bubble and Bee.

Orange, yellow, gold, brown. Indirect lighting. Shorter days. Fall solstice. In a tribute to fall, we wanted to share with you some beautiful things that are orange.

Fine, old art – in orange.

And where would the fashion world be without the color orange? We checked in with our official fashion correspondent, designer Krista Nielson on her opinions of the color, and here is what she said: “Orange is sweet and juicy, but make no mistake – orange has a bite that gets it noticed.  It is one of the strongest colors you can wear, it is a big “pop” color, the visual equivalent of an exclamation point! It is one of the most visible colors, there is a reason they make life jackets, hunting vests and prison jumpsuits out of bright orange, it gets you noticed.  It’s the “look at me color.”
