2011 Year in Review and the 2012 Pantone Color of the Year!

Orange AccentSeveral days ago I received a friendly email from WordPress with stats on my blog for 2011. The most interesting discovery?

My most popular post from 2011 was “Happy New Year and the Pink (Tile) Bathroom is Back!” where I wrote about the “new” trend of pink tile bathrooms and the “retro” pink tile bathrooms that are ubiquitous in our area. Apparently people have a lot of interest in pink tile bathrooms (how to decorate them, how to source new retro fixtures for them, how to create new pink baths or get rid of the old ones…) and my blog is the 3rd entry on Google when you search for “pink tile bathroom.”

In the New York Times article that inspired my blog post the author talked about how “Honeysuckle” (hot pink) was the Pantone color of the year for 2011.

And so, my dear readers, do you want to know what the Pantone color of 2012 is?

Tangerine Tango!”

Once you spot it you won’t stop noticing it – in fashion, in home furnishings (like the accent pillows and light above) – the bright orange is here to stay (at least for this year) and I think it’s great!

Here’s to an energizing 2012!
