Trend of 2012: Orange you glad its Tangerine!

This year Pantone named the 2012 color of the year Tangerine Tango!

 It says to me... "I'm dramatic yet sophisticated!" The beautiful color of the deep red-orange  pretty much speaks for itself, it has been seen everywhere from fashion to design. Check out these pictures of awesome Tangerine 

Tangerine Tango was the star for the Spring 2012 fashion show.

If you are adventurous enough to paint your walls Tangerine Tango you should do so; however if you're not… an accent wall is fun too! Just add that pop of color will transform your space.  As seen in this picture the tangerine orange walls work well with the white trim and ceiling because it neutralizes the color palette and gives the eye a place to rest.

 Not only are padded headboards an inexpensive way to give your room an expensive look but they are a great way to add texture and color. This one in, of course, the tangerine color looks gorgeous against that gray blue wall and white bed spread!

Love the orange walls with the indigo blue rug.

Another way to bring the 2012 color of the year is adding a colorful pillow to your room! 
This is a great pillow with a fun pattern in the tangerine color!
