So you guys know Pantone right? You know… the company that does the color palettes that’s used in a variety of industries. The expensive palettes. Oh how I would love to have a set! Right? c’mon… you would want it too…
Anyways, I’m here to talk about the “Color of the Year for 2012” – something I should have done in January… or December (hahaha).
So according to Pantone, the Color of the Year is Tangerine Tango. It’s this reddish orange color and I think the name is pretty cute. For me, whenever I think of the word Tango, I think of red. So I thought it was pretty creative for them to name this reddish orange color, tangerine tango.
I, personally, like the color. I used to dislike orange. Now, I’ve grown accustomed to it, and even love it at times. It’s a really nice accent to interiors, especially with fabrics and when it’s against a type of blue.
Let’s take a look if the world has decided to follow the trend.

I know I’ve seen a lot of the reddish orange popping up on my pinterest these days. I think it’s a nice color to accent a basic palette. Like the bride’s bouquet (pictured above); everything is neutral: beige, white, brown. Then you get this beautiful accent! it pops! Even in the wedding pictured below, the touch of tangerine tango, adds a beautiful accent to simple designs.
Well, that’s my little bit on Tangerine Tango. I’m thinking of buying an accent rug or something for my new room. OH! I should probably share that… I’m moving! to a new house a couple of neighborhoods over hahah but I’m excited because I get to paint my room and I’ve been picking colors the past few days, and I decided to go with a dark blue-green that has a gray-ish tint. I was inspired by this image:
cute huh? I love the plates. My mother collects those blue and white plates as well, and we have it displayed in our dining room wall. I want to do the same with my wall, but with colorful plates. More like this one:
cute right? RIGHT? and don’t you just love those drawers as well? (I don’t know what to call it, but I just want to call it the awesome drawers)
OK friends! I shall post again soon!
