Interior Designer Deborah Wecselman ~Pantone 2012 color

Pantone, the design world's authority on color, announced the punchy shade as the anticipated hue of the 2012.  Dramatic reddish orange reflects positive energy and warmth; however, for some, it may be too bright and on the cheery side.

Deborah's five tips on adding much-needed pop without disappointment are below:

  • Go all out: If you are in LOVE with the Pantone suggestion, go all out and coat an entire room with walls donning Tangerine Tango.  Add a few neutral accents (taupe, brown, khaki or cream) to soften the shade.
  • Ablaze in the Bedroom: Mix the shade with patterns and basic white to break up the space, add modernity to your personal space and blend with other bright hues such as avocado, saffron or fuchsia.
  • Subtle themes: If you require subtlety with bright accessories, tie in the color with accent pieces – chairs, abstract décor and toss pillows.  The below spaces shows how complimentary the shade is and how it goes well with blue and browns.
  • Shade simplicity: If more than one Tangerine Tango piece is one too many – use a piece of décor such as coral table accents, throws neatly folded onto couches and chairs or tangerine towels in the bathroom.
