Unexpected Beach Color - Decorating with Orange and Blue

When we think of a beach color scheme, we typically think of white and blue hues. However, a few weeks ago I was hanging out at the beach when the sun set, which inspired a new unexpected color combination - bright orange and deep blue. Decorating with orange and blue can create an eclectic color scheme. I rounded up a handful of contemporary table lamps as an example of how to incorporate this look.

(Top Row: Sedona Mosaic Fiberglass Table Lamp,  Possini Euro Design Blue Art Glass Table Lamp, Lamp Works Fluted Recycled Orange Glass Table Lamp)

(Bottom Row: Blue Bubble Glass Jug Table Lamp, Lights Up! Devo Oval Carrot Table Lamp, Haeger Potteries Blue Ceramic Egg Table Lamp)

You can use both hues in the same room for a more dramatic effect or you can sprinkle the colors throughout the home for a subtle look. I am really drawn to the orange glass table lamps for bedside lighting. They would look great paired with blue accents such as drapery or accessories. Or... how about the blue table lamps on a living room side table paired with orange decorative accent pillows or an orange throw.

What do you think about this unexpected coastal color combination?
