Welcome  to our final exploration of evocative colours this season. It's the atomic orange blog, originally inspired by these home grown couture Tulips in our cut flower nursery. Orange tends to elicit strong emotions, you either love it or you hate it... or do you? Around here we love it's controversy. We use it tactically in our projects, but never, ever as an apology. Like Tiffany blue and pink, as explored in this series, there is a time and a place for these bold colours. When it's right it's right, and it should never be forced.
