color of the year

I am having a love affair with orange.  Yes, I pinky swear, it was before Pantone named Tangerine Tango the 2012 Color of the Year. I first fell in love with the color when my old roommate, Ms. Parker, had a beautiful orange leather accent chair that she brought when we moved into together back in 2008. I was hooked. The orange chair gave our other gray and brown furniture zest, and it add that perfect pop we needed to make our living room shine.

Since then, I've used orange where I can in decorating our condo in our artwork and a few throw pillows. Mr. S doesn't quite understand my love for orange, and won't compromise on brining in an orange piece of furniture to our small space right now. So sad, perhaps one day when I have an office it can be all orange?! I've also added some orange accents to my closet by way of scarves, socks, and jewelry.

Here are a few ways to translate Tangerine Tango into key pieces of your wardrobe, and some clever ways orange can add a bit of "umph" to your home.


  1. Yes! I've been especially obsessed with orange this year, as well. My closet is starting to have an oompa loompa glow to it. I have an orange couch that sadly has to stay in Winchester until I live in a larger apartment. I'll always have my fingers crossed that your orange furniture dreams will come true one day!

  2. Fran - I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one obsessed with orange. I had never thought of the "oompa loompa glow", but as long as it's not the color of your skin, I say rock it!! I would LOVE to see your orange couch soon - when are you coming back VA to visit us??!!
