Tangerine Tango - Pantone 2012 Color of the Year

I'm sure you have read by now that Tangerine Tango is the 2012 Pantone color of the the year. I'm ecstatic as orange is my second favorite color (behind turquoise).  This reddish orange color works extremely well with neutrals such as black, white and grey; as well as with bold colors such as canary yellow, bright pink, turquoise, royal purple, teal, and stem green.

Now you might be asking how will this fit into my children's decor...well in more ways than you think.  Pick it up with accessories or go bold and paint a wall or the ceiling. Don't paint a whole room or it will make you and your child crazy.

Paint the back of your bookcases...

Or go simple with some accessories like blankets, frames. trim and pillows...
