Trendwatch: Venetian Plaster Colors

We've been seeing orange paired with taupe and gray popping up at Designer homes for the past couple of years, but we expect to see more than the usual restrained touches in the coming months as this fiery shade takes center stage, spurred on by the naming of "Tangerine Tango" as the 2012 Color of the Year.

So, what happens when Venetian plaster tangoes with Tangerine? Look for a dance of color and light in the reflective surface of a polished Stucco Veneziano, marble dust sparkling like rays of tropical sunshine in the smoothest Italian lime plaster, Marmorino, and silvery Stucco Milano Venetian plaster accents to cool all that heat.

All that citrus not your style? Our portfolio is brimming with pictures of Venetian plaster colors in a smorgesbord of color and surface texture.If you don't find what you like, just ask. We can tint Venetian plaster to virtually any color.

Color Inspirations

Late last month, the design world was all abuzz with Pantone's naming "Tangerine Tango" as the 2012 Color of the Year. Described as a spirited and energizing reddish orange, Pantone's Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute writes, "Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."

Ready for a bold rush of tangerine? What do you think?
