Tangerine Tango: How to Decorate with This Vibrant Color

Home Rehab Online: Decorating Ideas & Inspiration

By Allison Lind for Home Rehab Online

Decorating with color can be tricky, and working with bright, bold colors can feel especially daunting. The color-powerhouse Pantone Color Institute recently named one such color -- "Tangerine Tango" -- the top color of 2012.

"Sophisticated, but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."

Want to put this spirited reddish orange to use in your home? Try these tips to create a space full of warmth and personality.

Add a Pop

Commitment-phobes can still enjoy tangerine with a simple addition of one eye-catching accessory, such as a lamp, throw pillow or vase. Even the smallest pop can enliven a neutral space.

Brighten Up

Excellent for a nursery, kids’ room or even a home office, this color adds a refreshing dose of happy when applied to walls. Reluctant to paint an entire room? Go the simpler route and opt to paint just one accent wall. Keep other colors subtle -- especially on the other walls. White is a nice, modern way to temper the tangerine, while still letting you add other colors with small accent pieces and artwork.

Create a Juicy Greeting

Set the tone for your home with an energetic entry. Whether modern, traditional or even cottage chic, any style home would be right at, well, home, with a front door doused in tangerine. Here, the color adds warmth to what would otherwise be a cold, industrial entry.

Get to Work

If your work space is like most, it could use a shot of liveliness. So bring in some orange accents, rug and fabrics to do the job. Here, a mix of floral and graphic patterns work well together, thanks to their matching orange-and-white color palette. To prevent the room from becoming too distracting, neutralize it with soothing gray walls that allow the bold colors to shine without overpowering.

Sleep With Citrus

A few bright splashes are all you need to give a space a new look. Soothing cream walls and a gray upholstered headboard create an envelope of quiet color in this master bedroom. And the pretty punches of orange give the space a wakeup call, preventing things from becoming too predictable. Adding a sisal rug offers a neutral foundation to help keep the space calm -- just what every master bedroom needs.
