Tangerine Tango
Late month, Pantone pronounced that the color of the year for 2012 is a bright reddish orange called Tangerine Tango. Much like 2011’s Honeysuckle, Tangerine Tango is meant to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward. I’m 100% on board with any shade of orange; just take a look at my website and logo. Tangerine tango, in particular, is a versatile color that is sophisticated with dramatic and seductive qualities that will add a little pop to any home.

Barn Lights
If you follow me on Pintrest (and if you don’t please do!), I’ve been pinning a lot of images of barn lights. Adding just the right barn light is a great way to create a “rustic-modern” space. I’m particularly interested in lights that were originally designed for agricultural and commercial purposes. Adding a barn light to any home is an an unexpected way to add a touch of nostalgia and Americana.



Miniature Figures in Terrariums
This isn’t the first January when I’ve turned my urge to start outdoor gardening to indoor terrariums. This time I’m obsessed with the addition of little miniature figures to these small green worlds. There just happens to be a new model train store at the end of our block, I’m hoping they will have some charming figures for some added whimsy to these tiny worlds.
