Fuchsia & Apricot

Gary McBournie - Veranda

I love the color palette of this breakfast banquette space in a Victorian London townhouse. The fruit watercolors are 19th century Chinese. The banquette is covered in a fuchsia and orange ikat by Manuel Canovas called Boheme in colorway Rose and Orange. Ikat and chinoiserie is a wonderful combination as is pink and orange.

I have gathered some great pink and orange inspiration. Some have links to add a pop of this great combination to your home or wardrobe, others are eye candy.

Pink and Apricot CCC


  1. Great post today, Beth! I love orange and pink together too. That parrot tulip is gorgeous and I also like the front door! A bold choice - I wonder what color the house is. My front door is coral and my house is dark gray and I love the combination .

    1. I take it you are not in a gated community - LOL. I did Google the door but there is not a picture I could find of the house.

  2. Al Spok The BEST two Colors PINK & ORANGE = HAPPY !!

  3. That's one of my all time favorite combinations. Makes me happy any time I see it.

  4. Dear Beth,
    Do you ever run out of wonderful ideas and observations?

  5. I have been a "blue" girl all of my life, but recently this color combo has been calling to me! I read somewhere - related to Jackie Kennedy's trip to India - that hot pink is the navy blue of India. Isn't that a wonderful thought?!

  6. Those Chinese watercolors are just fabulous. Actually pinks and corals are perhaps my two favorite colors, and I love color. Everything from the softest whisper of pink to fuchsia, and everything from the softest apricot to Hermes orange.

  7. All of these SO WONDERFUL...especially those bordered napkins...WOW!!!

  8. Loved the pink and orange! The parrot tulips are sensational!!
