A while back, I promised that we would deliver on our promise to honor the Pantone Color of the Year for 2012 - Tangerine Tango.  When I asked the Valspar Contractor Store if he could replicate this famous color, he said 'no.' We would need to reference a paint chip from the color deck... the closest we could come up with was Orangelicious.  Sounds close enough, both sound like sultry citrus.

Exterior Doors
The front door and the service door to the garage are both Orangelicious.  We felt like this gave our "Modern Prairie" a little bit of the 1960s modern twist.  I really was pulling for lime green, but agree that this fits nicely.
The Orangelicious Door with our paint that is coming along nicely - I love the Columns in the Dark Bronze.

A closer peek at the door.  The rails also in the bronze look good, too.  We were on the fence (hey, PUN!) whether we should go dark or light.  Now that I see them painted in the Dark Bonze, they almost look like metal, and I like metal.  Metal good.


More tangerine on the inside with our light fixtures.  These were made by Jesse Lee Designs on Etsy.  The Dining Room light needs to be dropped another 12 inches, but that's another one where we'll see if that ever transpires.

And one more in the Master Bedroom.
