A year with Tangerine Tango...

The current year is coming to its end and in a few days Pantone will announce their Colour of the Year 2013.Tangerine Tango  was a surprising choice that enlivened our life in 2012. The Orange family is usually  looked at with much controversy: you love it or you hate it, it's something experts know. Personally I love it for it's optimism and energy, not so strong as red, but still very warm.

Yesterday I was looking at the best Tangerine Tango photos published in Pantone's blog and I collected my favorites in  the Interior Design field. And I'm bringing this anthology to you as my humble homage to this happy hue before it's kingdom comes to an end and we forget about it.

How did Tangerine Tango help us?

Infusing life in a sophisticated neutral room...

In beautiful textiles married with white, yellow-green and green hues.

Combined with bright hues in Folk textiles and ambients.

Being the accent to its complementary.

Creating a sensuous atmosphere in a room.

In a contemporay home.

From the 60's? In Antiques.

In this neutral contemporary home, tangerine makes the sofa's corner a cozy one.

In intimate and warm lighting.

Even in the patio!

In furniture.

My wishes are that this year with Tangerine Tango may have made us more daring with colour.That may we have good memories of this passionate hue. And that may you have enjoyed this selection I made for you

Christmas Decoration in all the rainbow colours.

It's a little bit early, but it's never too early to prepare your Christmas decoration, and I found a collection of wonderful ideas in Houzz this week. They have thought even of countries celebrating Christmas in summertime!


You will find ideas in all kind of colours, not only white, red and green. And I hope you will find  something that will fit your personal taste. Enjoy!

How color can help a community: the Heidelberg project.

Today I found this interesting post in Houzz that shows how a Color and Art project has helped to save the Heildelberg and Elba street neighborhoods from being demolished. Making a turn to the CMG slogan, we can state that "Color helps".
How powerful a tool to help others!!!

I hope you enjoy it and remember that colour can help in Healthcare Design as well. Be happy!!!
