Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year.................

Tangerine Tango

What can we do with this???!  At first I was a bit taken aback by how vivid (read: in your face) this color is.    Sure it would be fun as a jacket (I have one this color! yippee-I'm in style!!) but do we actually decorate with it??  In 2012???

If it's toned down by neutrals I think it's very livable....

...or maybe not.  Does this poof remind you of a pumpkin??? I'd toss that part out.

oh my.  I was liking this until I really looked at the half wall for a while....but I like the floor cushion!!

 I'm a sucker for a barn door.  I wish I had somewhere to put them in my house.  So does my, really.  Maybe.

I really do like it with gray.

I'm thinking this is fun.  And we all know a bedroom should be fun!

Why do I think that "if I was single, I would so do this"....

 Wild thang.

 I do love the art with the tangerine lipstick--the right side of this picture just was attached and I didn't know how to get rid of it.  That side is a bit dorm room for me.  But I do love the huge art. And the fact that there are no "token" tangerine knick knacks to try to make things look pulled together....


OK, now the stools are fun.

Is it the orange or the gray??

 ..Maybe I could take this much.

Or this much

Honestly, this is probably about as far as Tangerine Tango will make it in my house.
And my jacket.  Slung on a chair.  How 'bout you???

Take care,

I love color, but this new color is a bit much even for me. In a perfect world, I'd have the white kitchen with the orange stools. But the hubby really hates painted wood :)

Emily--I love *beautiful* unpainted wood. But builders grade oak, etc was created to be painted!!!
