Pantone’s “Color of the Year” Tangerine Tango (17-1463), lends itself not only to inspiring fashion but to interiors as well.
Even if you are not brave enough to commit to the rich spicy color itself, a gentler shade of tangerine is also beautiful and can be combined with gold, nude and pink to take things up a notch.
In a small space it’s preferable to use smaller accent pieces, especially if the color is more visually aggressive. A throw pillow or a colorful box on a coffee table can energize a room just as well as a painted accent wall or staircase which can be used to visually anchor larger spaces. If you want to try out the color in your room before investing in more permanent elements a pair of shoes or a dress in your desired color can be hung on a door or placed on a dresser. This will allow you to get a feel for it in the space, so have it in place for about a week to get the full impact. If you wish to accent your space with edible delights for seasonal flare, a bowl of Tangerines will do just that.
