Unless you’ve been living under a muted-tone rock this year, you’ve seen the bright tangerine and orange accents gracing the front of every single home magazine. After all, this year’s Pantone Color of the Year is Tangerine Tango!
Prominent designers from Jonathan Adler to Hermès are going crazy for this hot hue because of its versatile warm color which keeps an interior citrusy in the spring, vibrant in the summer, reminiscent of crisp leaves in autumn, and warm and cozy during the winter. This chameleon color really is perfect for all four seasons.
This refreshing tone can be paired with a variety of colors. Tangerine makes a great accent when paired with white, cream, blue, brown or grey. Some of the most popular pairings among interior designers this year have been tangerine with khaki and off-white, tangerine with blue (robin’s egg, turquoise or navy) and off-white, tangerine with brown and cream, and tangerine with jewel tones.
Maybe you aren’t quite ready to bring such a bold statement into your kitchen, and that is perfectly understandable. Add a pop of color to your kitchen with some orange place settings, hand towels, or a vase of orange hued flowers.
