Turquoise + Tangerine Dream

Yesterday it was announced that Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year would be Tangerine Tango. I just had to repost some of Erin's (House of Turquoise) great shots of the sassy hue. Apparently it's one of her favorite colors. (Of course turquoise, the 2010 Color of the Year, will always be her number one.) Looks like my client isn't alone in her love of this hot color combo. 

This room is basically perfection in my mind. Those lacquered walls, the artwork, the velvet on that amazing sofa, the cocktail table with those ikat pillows... But remember (I know I say it over and over): Wall prep and plaster perfection are key before spraying lacquer. Imagine a trace of orange peel under this color. A true tangerine nightmare!

Schumacher's Chiang Mai Dragon makes a reappearance. Haven't seen this once superstar of the blogosphere in a long time.  

If you like these cheerful images, you'll LOVE Erin's blog(s). Check out all of them. They'll brighten up your inbox everyday!
