The focus today is color, coming right from the globally recognized color gurus themselves, Pantone. Pantone has chosen a powerful punch of a red-orange for the  Colour of The Year, and it’s called Tangerine Tango!

It’s meant to reflect a revitalizing energy that we all need and crave as we pull out of this tough economic stint. I can’t help but feel a bit peppier when I look at it! According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, the shade is “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, with a lot of depth to it. Reminiscent

of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

 

Tangerine Tango is definitely a cross-genre trend color that looks as gorgeous in fashion and beauty as it does in interior and industrial design. Try adding a pop of fire to your nails or lips, or a fun accent to your living space.

And below, some awesome shopping finds to bring some citrusy energy to your kitchen, living room or bedroom!

 

Btw, finally!! We have a little sunshine this morning! But I’m not going to get too excited as the weather has been absolutely dreadful. I’m really starting to get sick of this temperamental London weather… please decide if you want to be sunny and warm, cold, rainy, cloudy, foggy … just not all in one day.

As I know it probably won’t last, let’s have some virtual sunshine!

A touch of sunshine with lemons – a dot dot dash favorite. I am loving the white marble breakfast bar, but not so much the giant ceramic pineapple…I hope you’re having a lovely sunny day!

This week we have another special guest, Liivi from The Unexpected Chic.
