Tangerine interiors..a Beautiful color Palette...


 We had a great Christmas and hope you did also. Julie's daughter's wedding plans are coming along and can't wait until the big day. Danni has loved having her son home, but she can't wait to be able to get her sleep again. You know how it is when kids come home from college and the odd hours they keep. You can't wait to see them and then can't wait for them to go back to school!



We are so excited for the new year. Some of the new predictions for 2012 that we might be seeing is a softer side, more feminine, with  Brocade Damask and paisley patterns. When we think of feminine we think of French antiques, and a Baroque feel. We also think of Chintz, even though we haven't heard it mentioned, it has a very feminine feel. We are also hearing that we will be seeing more dark dramatic interiors, Twilight colors.  One palette we will be seeing more of is tangerine, soft yellows, faded shades of rose, stone washed blues and grays with a soft touch of greens. Pantone named Tangerine the color of the year.

Designer Mary Evelyn has created a soft palette with tangerine and cream. The portrait , ornate sconces, silk flowing drapery create that feminine touch.

The soft hues of green with a touch of tangerine as pipping on the ottoman is just darn right pretty! Don't you agree? The painting brings in the blues with the repeat of the tangerine..

Interesting mix of opposite hues on the color wheel with geometric shapes.

Great mix of rustic beams and doors with a fun twist on furnishings. So inviting, can't decide where we want to sit. Maybe right by the amazing doors looking out to the back gardens.

Mamye Baker has come up with a fun whimsical wall of color.










Wonderful woven  fabrics. Makes us think of all the creative ways to use them in designing.

A perfect setting for conversation. Hum, martini anyone!

We love hearing about all the new predictions for the New year in interiors. We thought we would spend some time in January going through those forecasts. We would love to hear your opinion. Do you like the color palette or not?

We have one more week of family and friends visiting and the big wedding, YIKES!   We will try to post and visit your blogs, but we promise we will be back to normal the following week.

Thank you Tina from The Enchanted Home for the blog on fire award. We are very thankful to you for thinking of us.
