Colour Combinations #4: Midnight blue & orange

Midnight blue with deep reds and oranges creates a rich, dramatic effect. Our Midnight palette is inspired by Farrow & Ball's Incarnadine - a warm and glamorous red. 

On our art prints, Incarnadine is an accent colour, combined with deep blues and oranges, for a sophisticated look full of drama. Blue and orange are complementary colours - they sit opposite each other on the colour wheel, and when combined, especially in the most vivid shades, create some of the most visually stimulating effects. Balance this palette with large areas of neutral colour to ensure the look is not too overpowering.
