Home Decorating Annie’s Color Crush: Tangerine & Turquoise

Annie’s Color Crush: Tangerine & Turquoise

HotHouseSummerJuneJulyStripe11

With the steamy temps making the summer feel downright tropical, we’ve been looking to sultry hues to warm up our decorating. Tops on Annie’s list right now is the dynamic duo of tangerine and turquoise. Why do these two shades work so well together? Technically, they’re contrast colors, which are often better suited to accents. But we love the way hot-hot-hot tangerine revs up cool turquoise in a room palette, and, likewise, the ability of this tranquil blue to tone down what is, for many, an acquired taste. Take a peek at how this combo is inspiring Annie, and we think you’ll be on the tangerine-and-turquoise tip in no time.

Beautiful.
Wasn’t there some turquoise and tangerine in the photos from your recent India trip? In a large hotel lobby with dark wicker seating?!
