When Pantone announced their colour of the year as being Tangerine Tango I’m afraid I let out a massive groan. This shade of orange is very difficult to work with. I’ve yet to make any jewellery using this shade and to be quite honest I probably never will.
Of all the colours in the Spring 2012 forecast I personally prefer Bellflower (it’s a purple after all) and Margarita (soft green). I definitely see myself throwing some Margarita cushions or throws around the Living Room, and combining Bellflower lucite with silver or gunmetal chain.
I am trying very hard to appreciate Tangerine Tango, which is why I’ve put together this weeks palette. Although none of my selections this week are that colour, they are from the same colour family.
