Color with a sweet side, orange sherbert is a softer version of it's namesake fruit.
Cheerful and girly, the hue of orange sherbert might bring a pastel parfait fit to mind. Designers declare it delicious, but call for a bit of restraint. San francisco-based designer Palmer Weiss suggest pairing orange Sherbet and similar hues with grays and neutrals. "You don't want to to turn too saccarine on you, so incorporate some cerused wood and earthy elements as a balance," she says. Avoid going too cutesy with bright pastels. While this color reminds me of a delicious sorbet, you don't want the whole gelato shop. NY designer Lindsey Coral Harper says this shade "is vivid yet warm and immediately makes me smile. But don't use too much of it." On a recent project, she painted antique chairs orange Sherbet and covered the seats in a large scale plaid. It was very unexpected and just a punch the dining room needed to keep it from being too serious.
