2012 Pantone Color of the Year

Wednesday, January 4, 2012


I'm sure you all know by know, about the 2012 Pantone Color of the Year. I absolutely loved last year's color. And when I first saw this years I thought... hmmm that's the color that I can't wear because it clashes real bad with my light red-ish hair. As soon as I got past this, I realized that this color is perfect for a lot of other things (ya know other than clothes). I complied a list below of how I would use this color for everyday things in my life.


Red Floral Chair :: I love this chair. I think it would be a perfect fit in the corner of my neutral-colored living room, providing just the right amount of color & print.
Red Throw Blanket :: Perfect to keep on the couch when you need a little extra warmth.
Red Basket Bag :: A cute cross-body bag that would be good for summer actually... 
gotta keep a bookmark on this one!
Coach Poppy Bangles :: I love Coach jewelry & these bangles.
Coral Oval Earrings :: I'm really liking this color paired with gold.
IKEA Mirror :: Everyone needs a full-length mirror & the color border is a fun touch.
Flats :: Perfect with skinny jeans, or paired with black tights & a dress.
OPI in Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It :: A fun pop of color.

What do you think of the Pantone color of the year?
Love it -or- leave it?

  6. I think it's a great color, (and completely relevant) just in the right usage. The way you suggested above is a great example including accessories, interiors, and especially nails ;)

    I am excited to see more of this burnt orange coming through the way mustard yellow did (also a hard color clothing color for some) and am excited to see how people use it!
