“Uh-oh…..I think I overdid it…..”
So how do you get the trendy tangerine tango orange into your home interior – without overdoing it?
Well, you can get quite a bit of splash of it with a great, inexpensive woven rug….
(Get one with a Moroccan style arabesque pattern, and you’re way trendy…..)
But even if you’re more traditional than trendy, you can sprinkle tangerine tango throw pillows (add monogram for extra effect) into a stately blue and white scheme …..
Or a modern one…..
…..a whimsical one…..
…..or an ethnic one…..
Or throw an orange quilt on the bed…..
…..paper the back of a bookshelf with orange…..
Or to get a little daring (but not too overwhelming), paint an accent wall with bold orange stripes…..
But how do you really get comfortable with playing with the styles and the trends out there? Part of it is what I call “starting with a timeless and classic base”. All of the above images demonstrate some variation on the theme:
Build yourself a good quality base of largely-neutral-colored classic styled furniture,
and window treatments.
After that, begin to layer in the throw pillows, area rugs, artwork and other trends. Another important part of how to work with the trends is to first “identify your own design style”.
If you’d like to know more about “how t create your own style”, check out my previous blog post (where I outline the basic components of it, and a class I’m giving on the topic).
