TRIP THE LIGHT FANTASTIC WITH TANGERINE TANGO

PANTONE® COLOUR OF THE YEAR 

Trip the light fantastic with Tangerine Tango, Pantone’s® colour of the year.  As a Vancouver Home Stager, I know the importance of incorporating the latest and greatest colours and trends in order to keep my designs fresh and contemporary. 

 

Tangerine Tango - Pantone® Colour of the Year 

 

On a recent trip to the Las Vegas Furniture Market, I saw a lot of this year’s colour of the Year 2012, Tangerine Tango, a vibrant, rust-orange.  This colour is fresh, juicy and punchy.  It really give a room a kick.  Used in small doses, this colour really makes a room sing and demand attention. 

 

 Tangerine Tango - Pantone® Colour of the Year

I love the combination of tangerine and turquoise as shown here.  This is a very hip colour combination.  I can imagine using cushions in these colours to spice things up a bit.

Who could possibly stay in a bad mood when sitting on this bright, sunny, happy chair!  Orange you glad I showed you Tangerine Tango?!!!

Tangerine/orange has always been one of my favorite colors to spice up a room (usually through accessories) in a house I am staging.  I love the aqua and tangerine combo as well!

Sally, you're so right. Tangerine tangoes right over and makes you smile. A super-fresh color to make a statement to buyers.

I love orange color in accessories. Panthone's name for that color Tangerine Tango adds sort of passion in to design.

Peggy Sue!  Ha ha - I remember your reaction to orange.  I think it looks really good in small doses, but agree with you, I wouldn't want to over do it!

Maureen - I'm so fed up with the rainy weather we've been having lately!  Ahhhh, today the sunshine finally appeared.  Yes, tangerine tango is a bright, vibrant colour that chases all those grey clouds away!
