Bella Parade '13 : Post # 5

6:49 AM

Hi all, still having fun???

You were right, yesterday's color was Canary!!!


And moving on to today's color! Its a beautiful shade of red!!!

And here are the hints!
1. It is the name of a city that stands on a former island at the mouth of the a river by the same name on the Atlantic coast. The city's motto is "ferit aurum industria" which means "work brings wealth".
2. The diet using this hot ingredient was made famous by Beyonce Knowles
3. _ _ Y _ N _ _

So how would i use this color?

First up is my monochromatic scheme :

Using it with Pale Pink & Country Red gives me this wonderful color scheme!

Dont you just love it?

Now to pair it in a complementary scheme, I'd make it a Christmas combination using Emerald

And for a creative combination, I'd pair it with a couple of greys...

Zen Grey & Etchings Slate

It looks such a professional combination! I can imagine wearing a suit for a business meeting in these colors - formal, yet making a statement!

Now using it with prints!!!

I'd definitely use it in a Christmas combination

like A Merry Little Christmas by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake Designs

Though, it is a floral color, I would not like to pair it with other red floral prints. It will be all too much for me!

But I'd pair it with some pale florals in neutral colors
