Every year, Pantone chooses a new “color of the year,” and 2012 is the year of Tangerine Tango, a fiery reddish orange.
It doesn’t take much of this bold color to make an impact in any living space.

Mixing it in with blues and greens adds contrast and energy – perfect for those who are drawn to bright, bold color schemes!
I love the warmth of tangerine with tans and browns, as in this room below:
And if you’re not interested in adding this color to your home, what about using it in your garden? This post demonstrates some different ways to use it, discusses a little bit about color theory, and even makes plant suggestions.
Do you see Tangerine Tango in your future?
