Orange is one of the Feng Shui fire colours and is used to strengthen concentration. In restaurants, it is used to make you hungry and sociable and so spend more money. Orange once meant ‘cheap’ in business but now it is a colour for the 21st century as it relates to emotions and connections between people.
Extroverts love the brighter and deeper shades of orange. Quieter Extroverts lean towards peach and apricot tones. Introverts rarely wear the colour. If orange suits you and you want to make an impact, wear orange and purple or orange and aqua blue (as in this building).
Both wearing orange and eating orange foods acts as a natural anti-depressant. Orange renews your interest in life and lift your spirits. Use it to re-commit and to get up and go again.
