inspiration #42: tangerine tango ~ summer

Today I’m looking at Pantone’s 2012 colour of the year, tangerine tango in three ways to suit your wedding at any time of year.  This morning I shared my ideas for pairing this bold colour with softer pastels to create a soft and pretty springtime palette.  Click here to see the gorgeous combination of peach, coral and tangerine.

This lunchtime I’m sharing some bright & beautiful summer inspiration.  This fiery orange-red is the perfect match for an outdoor summer wedding or a destination celebration.  Citrus tones contrast beautifully with lush green lawns and foliage, set against a clean, crisp white background creating a vibrant, modern look.
