Orange and Turquoise




Before Pantone announced the color of the year, we were already seeing lots of orange.  After the pronouncement of Tangerine Tango,  I see orange everywhere.  I see it paired with turquoise more than any other color.  My perspective on color is also influenced by my store.  It's always so interesting for me to see what colors are selling.  I sell a variety, of course, but the orange/turquoise combination is very popular.  Does anyone know the process by which the color of the year is chosen by Pantone?  I'm sure I could find it in a matter of clicks, and I'll try to remember to work on that.  I think it would be fascinating to know more about that process.  The influence Pantone has, and the effects of their color choice are huge.  I put together a fun collection of orange and turquoise Etsy items, along with these gorgeous photos for you to enjoy.  Happy Friday!

Love this combination. My daughter just did her playroom in the colors similar to the Toby Fairley room and it's wonderful - happy and fun, just as a playroom should be!!

I often wonder if Pantone is following a trend...or setting one?

I don't do flips for turquoise but orange is a favorite. There are several rooms I have not seen before that are just gorgeous.
