A Design Blog of Feng Shui Designer Sherry Burton Ways

I have always been intrigued and fascinated by color.  As a Certified Home Interior Color Color Consultant, I study the color trends each and every year to be able to better guide both my residential and commercial design clients.

This year Pantone the supreme color guru of the US has selected their 2012 Color of the Year- Tangerine Tango- 17-1463.


Pantone’s 2012 color of the year, was selected because, “there’s the element of encouragement with orange, it’s building on the ideas of courage and action, that we want to move on to better things. I think it would be a disservice to go with a relaxed, soothing color now,” as my friend and colleague Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, told the Associated Press.

Because Tangerine is such a bright and vibrant color, I would recommend using it in interiors as:

Accent Walls



Area Rugs

Window Treatments

In addition it makes a great combination with other vibrant colors such as red.  I like the word “optimistic” to describe this color as we are moving into 2012 with a different outlook on life and our interiors.
