Style Report: Tangerine Tango

June, 2012

Color gives a room energy and life. So why not take a whirl this season with Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year: Orange.

“Start with a color you really love. When you find something that you love, then you really celebrate it.”—Sonu Mathew, Senior Interior Designer, Benjamin Moore & Co.

Orange is such a friendly, warm hue, it’s perfect for a foyer or when you want to make a grand entrance.

Why shouldn’t a statement chair get a statement color? Velvet upholstery makes this buttonback armchair a seat you’ll want to sink into.

Throw pillows provide a pop of playful color. When set side by side, contrasting patterns—one angular, the other rounded—become positively flirtatious. 

Wool crewelwork defines the brilliantly colored blossoms in this area rug, cultivating an exotic garden underfoot.

With its high-gloss, pierced cover, guests will admire this garden stool as a work of art. You’ll appreciate how it functions as a side table or for casual seating.

Pick from an entire crop of fresh oranges at Benjamin Moore. We like "Warm Comfort," 2010-20. Then complement it with "Silver Gray," 2131-60. benjaminmoore.com
