SF Giants Baseball // Orange October 2014 #worldseries2014

Olive green may be trending next year, but currently around San Francisco it’ orange, orange and more orange. If you haven’t heard, our Giants baseball team is back playing in the World Series – going for a three-peat! This time the opponent is the Kansas City Royals. So far, the series is tied at 1-1. Tonight is the third game.

Client Reveal: Kids’ Playroom Design

Last year I had the pleasure of working with a darling family of four in Dallas, Texas. The young family sought out my virtual design services to help decorate their new 4,000 square foot home. From furniture to wallcoverings, rugs to accessories, we worked together over the course of a few months to create a design that was kid-friendly, budget conscious and yet still reflects the family’s personal style.

Recently some of the rooms I designed were photographed and today I wanted to share the kids’ playroom with you. I love this space because it’s super functional, yet stylish too. The playroom features wide orange and white stripes on the ceiling, floor-to-ceiling book display and tons of smart storage for all the toys. The art wire is perfect for showcasing the kids’ masterpieces and can updated in minutes.

Tangerine Tango– Pantone’s Color of the Year 2012

Recently, Pantone announced it’s 2012 color of the year – Tangerine Tango! It’s 17-1463 on the fandex. This reddish orange is bold, energetic and as the name suggests a bit exotic. It’s also quite a change from Pantone’s recent picks:  uplifting Honeysuckle in 2011 and tranquil turquoise in 2010.
“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.” Visit the Pantone website for full the announcement.
Paint a whole room or add a throw pillow, a little Tangerine Tango can go a long way. For home it’s a terrific accent hue and you can’t go wrong pairing it with cooler blues and greens. A lamp, area rug or window treatments in this fiery orange color are perfects ways to accent this color and add warmth to the space. Or how about paint your front door this vibrant color? {Benjamin Moore’s Blazing Orange is a close match}
