Best Spaces with 2012’s Color of the Year

Have you heard that Pantone named Tangerine Tango its 2012 Color of the Year? Since this bold orange hue is one that many people tend to be afraid to use in interior design, I want to show a few spaces that incorporate the color beautifully.

When I think about tangerine, I dream about other places where this color is an important part of the culture. I adore Moroccan architecture and would love to walk down this corridor to gain inspiration. Doesn’t it make you feel good?

Orange is great for getting your creative juices flowing, so it’s the perfect color for your home office or workspace.

Tangerine is also tied to happiness, so if you’re feeling low, try bringing more orange into your surroundings.

While I love Moroccan design, as I mentioned above, there are plenty of other places where tangerine can brighten a space. Let’s dream about how we can use it in 2012!
