Tangerine For Summer Color In The Family Room

I have had so much fun trying to discover all the different color schemes I can use with my new checked drapes and I think this one with tangerine/orange is my favorite.  Such a cheerful and happy color.

I love the tangerine pillows and that tangerine and white chevron throw is my all time favorite.



I pulled some brass candlesticks out of my stash, polished them and used them for a little extra bling.  They work really well with my new goodwill planter.


 The coffee table got a makeover too.








 Full of sunshine and citrus colors for summer.  Love it.

                                       Are you adding touches of color to your home too?

  1. Love the new color, Marty! I like how the brass goes with it, too. Sometimes when I'm putting colors together I think of how an outfit would look in those colors. In yours I see tan/camel bottoms {skirt, pants, capris, shorts, whatever}, the tangerine in a top and the brass as jewelry. I think that is a great Summer look and it works well in your home.

  2. You have created such a warm and inviting place to relax and your home just keeps getting lovelier! And where in the world do you keep all of your pillows? You must have so many, now!
    Enjoy your tangerine changes!

    1. If they don't have them, I always add zippers to them, so I can take one cover off and add a new one. The pillow covers fold up really small and store in a basket. Love this idea.

  29. Your at it again Marty and I love it!!!! Citrus is perfect for summer and your updates hit it right on target - love the mix of geometric patterns all over and you've inspired me to get going on my summer decorating already! I'm thinking yellow (my fave summer color for the home) and navy, we'll see. :-)

  32. Lovely touches of tangerine. I wish I could have such a tranquil living room. Sadly, my 9 year old would destroy it in a hot second. I guess when I'm an empty nester, a nicely decorated living room will be my consolation prize. :-)

  33. Hi Marty! I love your new color and they blend in well with your little dog prints! Your coffee table is decorated just beautifully too! You're the best, always!
    Be a sweetie,

  41. Hi: I'm visiting from the Best of the Nest link party! I love tangerine aka orange in any room…it has certainly become one of my favorites! We did a back hallway with SW Copper Harbor and just love it. (http://www.libbywilkiedesigns.com/?s=copper+harbor) With white woodwork: perfect!
    And your round mirror here is wonderful!
