Color of the Month: Tangerine

Posted on May 21st, 2021 06:09 PM

Carroty is one of those colors; either you love it or hate it. We however happen to be confidently in the “love it” encampment, so this month’s Color is an awesomely pure shade of orange: tangerine.

Like all oranges, tangerine is a high-energy, bold, fresh, and fun color. It’s warm and welcoming, stands out melodramatically against neutrals and crisp whites (even in small doses).

The rule of thumb with bright colors is to use it advantageously. Not necessarily sparingly, but be chary not to overdo it.

Our blog will show you how: 


Tangerine: Works well in the dining room, even a formal one!

Dining rooms have always been a traditional space with very petite design invasion. The reason it has seen that kind of attitude is that the room has long been concomitant with utility over stylishness. With more and more people opening up to the ideas of having instagrammable dining rooms and the social world engaging more profusely in the eating and cooking culture, the room has seen a dramatic modern overhaul, and tangerine with its lighter and darker shades bring that theatre to it!

Tangerine: Provides a chirpy incentive in the living room:

Can’t think afar the beiges and browns and whites? The interiors of a neutral-toned living room will get a much needed uplift with tangerine. A simple floor rug and a tangerine upholstered chair help fashion a clear-cut color scheme that gives a citrusy punch to the room. The idea is to go big and gallant with one or two accents and to keep everything else unpretentious that don’t demand too much courtesy.
