Recipe For Color: Blue and Orange

Pantone’s color of the year for 2012, Tangerine Tango, inspired me to do a post on oranges hues.  I tend to like orange best as an accent rather than a wall color, so these color recipes utilize orange as such.  Pillows, accent furniture, accessories, art or even drapery are great opportunities to incorporate a pop of this fun color.  Whether subtle or dramatic; a little color in your interiors keeps things interesting.

One of my favorite color combinations is blue and orange.  This scheme can compliment a variety of interior design styles from modern to traditional.  Here are some color recipes to get your inspiration flowing:
