The Lush color formerly known as Quince is now……….POPPY!!!

“Oh good! Yes, Poppy is a much better name. Much more fun & it just sounds more ORANGE!”

[…said a wonderful customer just a few minutes ago!  Hence, this explanation of the name change…]

“Orange is the happiest of colors”  – Frank Sinatra

Color names are a funny thing; it can make or break a persons opinion of said color or product.  If you have ever studied color theory, you know what I’m talking about, and our products are no exception.  This is why we decided to re-name our color Quince to the fun-loving new Poppy color.

“The color orange creates a lot of controversy; it evokes strong emotion and is a color that people seem to either love or hate. Color experts agree that orange radiates warmth and energy.” – The Examiner

More Fun Facts About The Color ORANGE:

  • Physically, the color orange stimulates activity, appetite and our ability to socialize.
  • Orange is a color that really stands out, even at a distance, and invites attention.
  • In the practice of Feng Shui, colors hold great significance, and orange represents fire.
  • Orange helps us focus our powers of concentration, and it’s also the color that’s credited with assisting us in organizing our thoughts and our things.
  • During the Elizabethan Era in English history, only nobility were allowed to wear orange clothing.
