2012 Pantone Color of the Year: Tangerine Tango


Ashlee Raubach

Is it orange? Is it red? I don't know, but I LOVE it! Yesterday it was announced that Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year would be Tangerine Tango. This is actually one of my favorite colors (aside from turquoise, the 2010 Color of the Year, we all know that's number one!) I normally don't use it in my home, but a lot of my favorite clothes, accessories, and often times my nails feature this punchy shade. And how can you not love it paired with turquoise?? It gives off such great energy! That's actually why Pantone chose it...they said it provides the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward. Sounds about right to me! What do you guys think? Do you approve?

Have a happy weekend everyone!! :)

Lynn Morgan Design






This delightful Southport, CT home designed by Lynn Morgan and photographed by Laura Moss is like a breath of fresh spring air. (Should I really be anticipating spring already??) I love that it's a little bit coastal, filled with pretty color and great pattern. That breakfast area is my favorite...love those big windows, the French bistro chairs, the cozy banquette filled with colorful cushions and that fab lantern! The perfect start to a great day, I say! You really don't want to miss out on the rest of the home, so head here to check it out!

Armonia Decors + Toujours Magazine






It's old news around here that I'm a big fan of Emily Ruddo of Armonia Decors, but did you know she is also the design editor for Toujours Magazine? Along with co-founder and photographer Meghan Beierle-O'Brien, Emily spent the weekend sprucing up her fabulous LA apartment (we've seen and loved here!) for the Toujour Magazine Holiday Decorating Guide. I absolutely adore her coastal Christmas mantle! Emily actually decorated it with two different styles, so head over to Toujours Magazine to see the second look (the spread starts on page 42) and see more pics of her place, plus get lots of festive tips for decorating your home. Keep your eye on Emily's blog too because she will be sharing behind the scenes details of the holiday photo shoot all week. And for more holiday inspiration, check out the Toujours Magazine blog!

Carde Reimerdes












Sometimes you just have to let the view have all the attention! Surrendering to the sea and mountains just outside the windows, designer Carde Reimerdes chose a soothing white and bone color scheme for this seaside escape on the dreamy island of Mallorca. I love how the delightful bits of turquoise in the accessories hint at the Mediterranean Sea outside. Pretty sure I wouldn't be able to get a wink of sleep in that utterly romantic bedroom with its beautiful canopy bed and jaw-dropping view! Head on over to El Mueble for more pics!

Tobi Fairley + Beverly Wells









What's better than a home decorated by Tobi Fairley?? How about a home decorated for the holidays by Tobi and her mother Beverly Wells! I positively adore the turquoise and green palette that was inspired by the Wells' furnishings and gorgeous aqua-painted kitchen cabinetry, as well as the green-and-cream fabric from Tobi's new fabric line. They actually used it to make the fab striped runners on the dining table...so cute! You can see more images taken by Rett Peek and read all about their traditions over at At Home in Arkansas!
