In honor of the new colors for 2012, The Art Selectress has compiled some of our favorite designs below with a little advice on how to use Tangerine Tango and Wythe Blue without going overboard. Be sure to check out the sources to read more!
From The Decorologist
A great way to include this years must-have color is by adding some unexpected details to the room. We love how this room grabs the eye with touches of Wythe Blue from the floor-to-ceiling framed artwork that flank the bed, to the clear vase on the vanity/nightstand, to the bright blue lions in front. Not ready to commit? (Well, there will be a different color next year.) Try gathering all the bright orange and red books, pillows, art and rearrange them into one spectacular room! Remember our blog last week on RE-organizing rooms and art? It works!
You don't have to re-do a whole room. Sometimes simply adding a touch here and there can make a major difference!
From The Visual Vamp
A simple color boost to an old chair, add some art and a cool blue vase (side table, lamp, blanket, etc.) and you have yourself a fresh, new space! Try this trick in the corner of a room to create a space that feels totally yours.
From House of Turquoise
Hello, Stripes! How chic is this entryway! If you are in the mood for some Tangerine Tango, try adding an elaborate table like this one in your home. Think entryway, behind the couch, bedside tables, you get the idea. And if you want to amp up the effect, add a mirror above the table to reflect more color!
Painting by Alicia Chatham
Art can be a great way to finish off that newly refreshed room! Check out Alicia Chatham's painting above with a mix of tangerine reds and and icy blues. A piece like this will bring the whole room together! Have fun browsing the galleries near you or online and you'll be sure to find something that will make your room POP!
