Tangerine Tango

My heart literally skipped a beat when I saw the 2012 Pantone Color of the Year.  I have been OBSESSED with Tangerine for almost my entire life, even before it was deemed the coolest color ever by the center of the color universe (mainly because it looks so fabulous on red heads… wink, wink).  Seriously though, how GREAT is Tangerine?!  So cheerful, so fun and full of life, so warm yet fabulously tropical at the same time.  Here are a few of my favorite tangerine hued items I just might have to make room for this year:

1.  Imperial Trellis by Kelly Wearstler – Schumacher
2. Striped Paper Straws – $4.50 – GreenMunch
3.  Saarinen Tulip Armchair – $1694 – DWR
4.  NARS Casablanca Satin Lipstick – $24 – NARS
5.  Compagnie de Provence Extra Pure Marseille Orange Blossom Hand Cream – $19.95 – Sur La Table
6.  Jamie Young Lamp Base & Shade – $250 – Layla Grace
7.  Swirl Tumbler Set – $24 – West Elm
8.  “Colors 51” Acrylic on Canvas by Jen Ramos – $95 – Coco And Hearts
9. “Totally Tangerine” Nail Polish by OPI – $4.99 – Amazon
10.  Bright Stockholm Letter Sorter – $9.99 – The Container Store
11.  Orange Versa Rug – Madeline Weinrib

  1. Ooooh I love the chair! I was thinking it would be cool to have vibrant chairs when we someday get a dining table that’s not counter height. Tangerine would look marvelous with your hair – agreed :) Coral lipstick anyone?


  2. I am obsessed with Coral (def close to the tangerine family)!!! We are implementing some in our Baby Nursery! Saw some great lamps at Home Goods that feature Coral if anyone’s interested. Love this post!

    • ME TOO! I love coral so much… I think that’s why I’m kind of obsessing over this particular hue of Tangerine… it’s a bit on the coral side :-) What Home Goods did you see them at? I must check them out!
