Color of the Year – “Tangerine Tango” (Who comes up with these names?)

Standard

So, in case you missed it, the color of the year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango.  I call it orange, but tangerine tango sounds much more sophisticated.  You can read more about it here.  You can even read about the spring fashion trends on the pantone website here.  It is kind of cool.  I am not so sure how this works…is pantone the chicken or the egg.  Do the fashion and interior designers of the world start using a certain color and then it becomes the pantone color of the year OR does Pantone select a color and THEN it is used by the designers.  I tend to think it is the former, but who the heck am I.

And, maybe I am giving it special attention because it happens to be one of my favorite colors.  So, for good measure, here is the run down of my favorite “tangerine tangos”!

Fabrics…..

Flowers…

Events….love this.

Fashion….

Texture & Architecture…

You can check out all of my other “tangerine” pins on my pinterest “orange and aqua” board here.  And, you will find all the links to the photos above on this board as well.

 

I have a new blog design coming soon and I am very excited about it.  I am also working on a few projects that I will post up soon.  Another spring quilt inspired by the jasmine in my backyard that is now in full bloom and smelling wonderful.

Have a great weekend.

Bathroom – Before & After

Standard

I am slowly but surely finishing up the home decor in our new home.  Surprisingly, I got most of it done in the first few weeks after moving (huge thanks to my mom for the help).  I have a few things left to do:

  • Window Coverings – I am threatening to make these so be on the lookout.
  • House Plants – I could use some greenery in the house.
  • Front Entry – Plants & Decor
  • Framed Bulletin Board – This is on my list to make myself.  Stay tuned.
  • Laundry Room – Needs something!
  • Garage – Forget it…not mine!

That is pretty much it.  Today, I crossed one item off of the list.  This was the second bathroom which has been waiting for me to find just the right color combination of towels.  I wanted something different and colorful.  Today, at Target, I found it.  Enjoy the before and after photos.  Super simple update that took less than 20 minutes.  I already owned the framed prints which worked perfect in the bathroom.
