Color Inspiration: Tangerine

01.13.11

In the middle of winter doldrums, why not liven things up with a shock of color?

Tangerine is a brilliant color that attracts a lot of attention. While orange hues are intrinsically bright and energetic, some of the newest textiles are showing orange in color combinations and patterns that are more sophisticated, such as stripes that combine tangerine with charcoal gray and cream, or graphic prints that pair it with other citrusy colors to reflect a pop art style. One no-fail trick when working with orange is to pair it with the colors found beside it in nature. Pair tangerine with black and darker shades of blue or with white, off-white and lighter neutral colors.

Instant “happy” don’t you think?
