Tangerine Tango :: Incorporating 2012 Color of the Year into Your Decor

Pantone has designated the bright reddish-orange color named Tangerine Tango as the 2012 Color of the Year. Always, one to love following the color trends, this month I pulled together an Ideabook for Houzz featuring 20 products in Tangerine Tango that I know would add a pop of color to any decor.

I wanted to share with you some of my favorites from the ideabook, as well as other items I think look amazing!


I love this Wise Ol’ Owl Canister from Anthropologie.


This classic pattern in fun, beautiful colors from Kim Seybert make a wonderful update for your table setting. They are priced in the “up-there” range. But I love the inspiration for pattern and colors.


Kitchenaid has a full-range of appliances in beautiful colors, including Tangerine and this Persimmon stand-mixer. I thought the persimmon color was closer to this year’s Pantone color of Tangerine Tango than the tangerine model. Regardless, wouldn’t this start your morning off with a burst of sunshine in the morning?


Wouldn’t a set of fun tangerine sheets be cute in a child’s room? I love these from Garnet Hill.


Concerned about going all out with tangerine in your home? Why not to add a fun try to perk up your mornings or to serve as an organization station on your counter or desk? This lacquered tray from West Elm would be perfect!

For more products that I am loving in this year’s color, head on over and check out my Ideabook on Houzz for this month!

What do you think about this year’s hot color? Do you think you’ll use it in any of your decor?

  1. SUCH a gorgeous color, although I’m glad I have you to keep me on trend, I never have any idea! My house stays in a perpetual cream/gold/chocolate brown palate but it’s nice to add a few accent pieces now and then.

    I am now obsessing over that owl canister.

  2. I’m obsessing over that owl too Kristen! Will be keeping my eyes peeled for tangerine. It’s such a happy color!

  3. yes to the owl . . . and YES!! to the color – LOVE IT!

  4. I LOVE this great color! And that owl, for sure! I have incorporated little pops of orange in my dining room and my oldest daughter has some orange in her bedroom – it adds just the right touch of cheer. 🙂

  5. I was just in a house that had this color for their kitchen last night – it was gorgeous!
