The hottest colour this year, according to pantone
, is a tangerine orange, or tangerine tango as they call it. And who doesn’t need a little dramatic tango energizing their décor this summer?
Since you’ve probably already tidied up and freshened the air for spring, it seems like a perfect time to spice up the kitchen, or any room in the house, with an energetic colour such as this popular reddish-orange.
So many rooms are usually full of cool, neutral colours, so a dash of vibrant, friendly orange on pillowcases or a backsplash would go a long way to providing a burst of spirit. The Santa Fe
or New Mexico
wall tiles, for example, would be the perfect candidates for bringing some fun and warm hues to your kitchen.
Don’t forget, you don’t need much of a strong, solid colour such as tangerine to have the desired effect, too much can make a small space look even smaller. That’s why these kinds of hues are so high impact and are often used simply as accents or in accessories around the home; they pop out wherever they are!
Always keep in mind how you want to feel in each room of your home and find the colours that match that emotion. Often kitchens are lively and stimulating places, perfectly suited for warm colours such as red or orange.
