When Navy meets Tangerine

January 11, 2012

Blue has always drawn my eye. There is something about the calm richness of the hue that makes me so happy. Navy in particular. Sophisticated yet unexpected. It looks good on everyone and is a great neutral alternative to my normal gray.

My resurgence for the love of navy came from the latest addition of Elle Decor ‘trend alert‘. Mixing their forecast with Pantone’s color of the year Tangerine is a quite amazing mix of color. Though I don’t think I could pull off an outfit out of the orange, I would indeed like to try little pops of it in my nails or a luxurious snake-skin bangles.

But why stop at fashion? It looks smashing on the walls and sofas as well. This color combo just might be a game changer for me.

    Love the mix of Navy and tangerine! Perfect for spring without being too over the top as some of the other upcoming seasons trends. Especially love the decor using both colors.

    Two of my favorite colors. They are both beautiful and I absolutely LOVE them by themselves as well as together.

    Can I just say I love your blog! And that first photo is stunning, I want that dress! My university colors are blue and orange and I never thought they complimented each other but you’re right tangerine looks really nice against the blue.
