Tangerine Tango-ing Into Your Home

Following the announcement of Tangerine Tango as the Pantone Color of the Year for 2012, I thought I'd highlight some of my favorite inspiration images that feature this brilliant color.  It's easy to go very bold, but I think layering it in with other colors is what really makes orange shine.

This room design is pretty well know across the blogosphere (I even wrote about it almost a year ago!), but this is the first time I've seen a wide angle shot of the room, which also feature a gorgeous sleeping area.  The creamy whites framed by that dramatic black + shots of blue and orange make me want to move right in.

I also like this take on blue and orange, paired with a rich neutral wall color.

Orange also looks great paired with varying hues of gray, as seen in this modern living room.

And this bedroom design shows how easy it is to incorporate an accent color into any room.


So, let's add a little bit of orange to your life, shall we? 

1. Geometric Vase/Tray/Mug / 2. Parson Bookcase / 3. Damask & Dot Pillows / 4. Side Table / 5. Bonjour / 6. Cylinder Lamp / 7. Candle 

We added orange to our living room through a piece of large scale art (pillows, window treatments to follow!) - it looks great & I can't wait to tell you how we came about the piece and how I DIY "framed" it.

I'm loving the oranges! I'm thinking of using coral as an accent color for my kitchen.
