High vs Low: Pink and Orange Ikat

Everyone is trying to use the Pantone Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango, in their decor this year. A favorite fabric of mine featuring this color with hot pink is the Kazak handprinted fabric by Quadrille. Even Mary Mac Donald used it in her Instant Room feature in House Beautiful June 2010, and entertainer and designer Eddie Ross uses it for tabletop decor in the image above.


You can get a gorgeous Ikat pillow from Oomph for $385 (whew!)

Or another Ikat pillow option from Etsy for $150

But it gets even better than that. You can make your own below with a pretty close copy of the fabric.

at $45 per yard from Lewis & Sharon Textiles

Still not dirt cheap or an exact copy, but it’s a similar look for less than half the price, so now you can use it in your nursery or daughter’s room. And now Annette Tatum has come out with an Ikat duvet set with a similar vibe. Not as bold, but lovely just the same.

    So Tangerine Tango is really the color of 2012? I thought my friend was just kidding! And Tangerine Tango used with hot pink makes for one daring and eclectic color combination!

    I think pink and orange aren’t easy colors to combine. But choosing a pattern — like these ones shown in your photo — is not easy to do either.
