Accent Color: Tangerine

Well I must say, I was pleasantly surprised when most of you responded to my post yesterday and recommended the color I had already chosen: tangerine! Yay!

So here's the deets on the new color for our living room:

I purchased 2 pillows from JCPenney for $9.99 each. Normally, I would sew these myself but for $9.99 it made more sense to just buy them already made!

Then, I found 2 adorable tea-light holders at Marshalls for only $3.99 apiece. Hallelujah- they matched the pillows to perfection!

In the photo above you can get a sense for how the colors match the loveseat!

I also grabbed the "J M" initals that I painted a while back because they are almost the exact same shade of tangerine. Perfecto.

Notice the little lamp switcher-oo as well? I found 2 beautiful glass lamp bases at Goodwill a few weeks ago for $10 apiece. Be still my heart. I have moved the green lamps elsewhere, and I feel like these add the perfect touch, especially with the new tangerine accents.

What do you think?


  1. The tangerine makes a addition to the room! It really makes the whole room look brighter and more alive. I love it!

  2. I love it!! Great choice on the color. It definitely brightens everything up.

  3. Are the glass lamps fill-able? They seem super versatile! =) & looooving the pop of tangerine! Glad you went bold & beautiful <3

  4. Dude, you are truly amazing! I miss you stopping by my blog :(

  5. I just love tangerine too. I want to do a lot of tangerine, turquoise and yellow. So bright and pretty.

  6. Thanks Y'all! I'm so glad I went with the tangerine too, it really makes everything feel more vibrant. Thanks for all the help!

  7. Love it... I have two old wingback chairs in orange. I've been considering slipcovering them, but now I think maybe I need to go the OTHER direction and add more orange to my living space. Thanks for the inspire!

  8. I love it!! It looks really good. Way to go!

  9. Erin- those chairs sound amazing! I can't wait to see what you do with them!

    Jane- Thanks a bunch! =) I know you are a fellow orange-lover as well!

  10. Jennifer- YES, I think the lamp bases are fillable! They don't really have a base to hold things in, but it wouldn't be hard to just put some things in there and have the lamp hold them down. I was thinking christmas ornaments might be cute in there for the upcoming holiday season!

  11. I like the color choice with all the neutrals, and the lamps were a steal- and hey, I have that same coffee table! Imported from Sweden, right?
