Pantone Color of the Year- Tangerine Tango for Custom Printed Wallpaper, Murals, and More!

Last week, the color of the year was announced by Pantone. It is a bright and fiery orange tone that reminds me a lot of a classic Hermes scarf on a bright New England Fall day. 

This color leads to lots of fun wall art designs that will brighten any room.

 This painting reproduction wall mural size would add lots of romance and drama to a bedroom, living room, or even hallway or alcove.

 I love this image for a cozy reading area or dining room. Squint and picture it as your very own custom wallpaper.

 Ah, a sunset colored image of a world map. Kind of makes you think of buried treasure! Would be ideal in a boys room or even the family den!
 We lived in Arizona for a time and I miss the painted evening skies. Oranges of browns are very hip colors for 2012. Maybe it's time to try something a little Western in your living room or family room murals?
 This photograph is just about the most gorgeous I have ever seen. In a wall mural, it would be a total show stopper.
 This faux stone would warm up an area and make you feel right at home in any room. You could use it on walls, stairs, bookcases, and more.

 Ah, Broadway! Nothing better than the bright lights of NYC for your theater lover. This would have been awesome in my room as a teenager!

 My daughter's BFF is very much into elephants and every time I see this adorable photo, I think of her. Don't you think she would LOVE it in her bedroom?

 50's vintage art is very much in vogue. Perhaps this mural would be perfect for your TV room or home theater.
 Living in New Hampshire, this reminds me of home. I can see this wall mural on any wall in the house.
What a fun vintage hexagon paper. You really could use this on any smooth surface in your home. Think backsplash, cabinet doors, ceilings, walls, and more. It is fun and bright and certainly would make you happy when you passed by!

Holiday Time for this Customized Walls Staffer Should Come in Print!

So, I have NO EXCUSE not to be blogging these days. Work plus 3 kids to schlep to parties and sleepovers during this holiday season has actually left me with a little bit of time to myself. However, I have used that spare time to READ. I am a pretty avid reader all the time for the most part but lately, I have been reading even more than usual.

Books that I have been obsessed with: 

My daughter has been reading my copies of The Hunger Games trilogy which has me re-reading and so excited to chat with her about them. Bel is 10 and this is the first series that she has read of "my books". It is so fun to read through with her and chat. Our own little book club, if you will...

This book had me on my toes. "It begins as a twenty something Christine wakes up in a stranger's bed unable to remember how she got there. She quickly learns some disturbing facts: the stranger is her husband, Ben who she can't remember at all, she is middle aged and has forgotten most of her life and she suffers from a rare form of amnesia where she can't retain memories from day to day. As she's trying to cope with all of this information, she stumbles across something more bizarre--a journal where she's been recording her recollections of recent day's events beginning with the title page on which she has scrawled, "Don't Trust Ben!" EEK!

A Novel with a well researched look into a slice of the life of Ernest Hemingway. I knew little more than middle to high school knowledge of his life. This dramatic love story starts off where Ernest met his first wife, Hadley Richardson (whom he  has much quoted in saying he wished he lived life only having loved her). 

The Paris Wife stimulated my interest in Hemingway so much at I've since purchased A Moveable Feast for my iPad.

So, what have you been up to this fine holiday season?
