Friday Faves: With Tangerine Trees and Marmalade Skies

20 Jan

Each year, Pantone announces its “Color of the Year”.  The color authority combs the world looking for influential color and its Color of the Year proclamation affects design decisions in fashion, interiors, products, packaging, you name it.  This year’s color is a bold and vibrant reddish-orange, Tangerine Tango.  Artists, always ahead of the curve, have been embracing orange for quite some time.  I know it’s always been one of my own favorite hues.  Take a peek at some of these lovely examples of tangerine dreams!

    Love these – had never seen Christina Foard’s work and really like her style. Thanks.

      Glad you like Christina’s work, Suzanne! She is a huge favorite of mine, as well as a dear friend. You’ll see her work featured often here. 😉

    So dark and rainy out, and the oranges are making me feel warm and happy! Colour affects us so much, thanks Lesley for this pick-me-up.
