Have You Got your Tangerine On?

Well…okay, maybe you’re not prepared to paint entire walls Tangerine.  But there are plenty of ways to bring this fun, energetic color into your home.  Voted Pantone’s Color of the Year 2012, Tangerine Tango is sure to bring some pizazz into your space.  As the trend for color continues–yes, even in Alberta, where the color of choice is tan, we can easily add a hit of Tangerine to brighten things up.

I love this shade partnered with white and chrome accents.  It is a perfect color for a teen’s room, as they move from their childhood color schemes into a more grown up theme.  Don’t worry…they are only teen-agers for a little while!  And remember my motto…it’s only paint!  Definitely use it as a feature wall.  If you just can’t commit to paint, there are some fabulous bedding and decor accessories out there to add some punch to a neutral backdrop.  Pair Tangerine with Turquoise and add a pop of yellow, and you can’t help but be instantly energized.

I can think of a couple of nephews that would be thrilled to have this fantastic color added to their rooms.  The graphic prints available now are a great way to update a dated room.  The 60’s and 70’s inspired patterns are funky and contemporary.  Imagine my thrill when a client dug out an old pair of table lamps–a beautiful shade of Tangerine complete with Chrome Base!  They are minus the shades, but a quick addition of a new shade and they are right back in style.  Eeeek…how great is that!

      I love the tangerine! Although it may be hard to get some boys to change from black – wouldn’t want to add too much color!!

    You are so right, Erin! But I love the bedroom you did in Black! With all of the white accessories we chose, I think it is great. Many people would be afraid to go black on the walls…that is a post for another time, and we can get reader’s feedback on the design of one of my favorite teen’s bedroom!
