A cross between orange and brown, desert sun is warm and welcoming without the youthful quality of tangerine or a brighter orange.
Easily pair it with nudes for a sophisticated palette or with reds for a provocative and daring color palette.
Unlike its close relative bright orange, the somber desert sun is not used to illustrate tropical settings. It is, however, used to create a luxurious feeling, often symbolizing wealth and wisdom. Like its name suggests, desert sun is also associated with the desert, warm, dry climates, and, of course, the captivating and mysterious ancient Egyptian culture.
