Nutshell case study #1: Rebranding The Mrs

Just this past weekend, I had the pleasure of re-designing the popular blog, "The Mrs" where Suzy Homemaker meets Anne Taintor. Enjoy cheeky and well-written articles on housewifery, frugality, and much more. It's responsible for my daily smile.

Tangerine Tango: 2012 color of the year!

One of our favorite colors has just been announced as Pantone's 2012 color of the year! Tangerine Tango is energizing, yet sophisticated... the perfect marriage of orange and red.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and color standards, from fashion and home to print and web.

If you're looking for color pairings for Tangerine Tango, we love a pale blue-green (as shown below).

Cream is also a great neutral to pair with it:

Enjoy your tangerine!
