The times, they have a'changed...

Recently, I was reminded that once upon a time, it was taboo to put pink and orange together. They just didn't go together.

I just have to wonder how that rule came about..

Because as far as *I* can tell, pink and orange really look nice together!

Really makes you wonder how much of what we think is really offensive to the eye, is just a matter of perception, and how much is truly not made to be attractive??

What exactly about these two colors together used to make people wince, and WHY?? (Side note: If these shoes were RED and orange together, I would be SO LUSTING them! :p )

Used to be, even redheads were forbidden to wear pink!

Thank God for Molly Ringwald and Pretty in Pink, huh?? :p

Lol...It's either wayyyy too late at night for you ( are behind me, I think!), or you are NAKing! :p

Yup, I've got to say that I love a bit of pink and orange side by side. And I say a big loud bah humbug to that rule and green should never be seen without a colour in between.

Lol, Hoppo, I was thinking of incorporating that rule in, too, but I wasn't prepared, and then decided to just keep it simple, anyway. But yeah...that's a dumb rule...I LOVE blue and green together!! :D

In grade 11 I had a really cool art teacher that said pink and orange do go together because they're next to each other on the color wheel. They both contain red. Funny the things one remembers :)

Some of my favourite vintage sheets are the orange and pink ones, love that combo of colours. My Mum always used to say "Blue and green should never be seen." Don't get that one either.

I've never been a huge fan of orange but it looks great with pink in all of the pictures you posted.
