Nursery Spotlight: Tangerine Tango
We’ve been seeing Tangerine Tango, Pantone’s Color of 2012 everywhere lately. The key to using the bright, energetic hue in nursery decor is to balance it with a cooler color (like teal, turquoise or brown) or with neutral elements. Here are some ideas for incorporating the on-trend color into your little one’s nursery.
Teal and tangerineHow pretty is this beach-themed nursery from Project Nursery? To channel this look, mix tangerine with light teal and include beachy elements, like seashells and sea glass.
Tangerine accentsTo add color without going overboard, this nursery (spotted on Design Sponge) uses neutral furniture with pops of tangerine in the crib bedding and picture frames. We love the idea of using one larger frame with baby's initial.
Go boldThe simple, white furniture in this surf-themed room from Nursery Notations tones down the bright walls and floor.
A fun bookshelfCheck out more photos from this nursery on Baby Lifestyle -- we love the tangerine, chocolate and teal color scheme.
