We've been talking up Pantone's color of the year for 2012, Tangerine Tango, in many aspects of home decoration. But we've yet to tackle this question: is tangerine a good option for a baby or kid's room?

One great aspect to this color is that it's gender neutral. On the down side, it's definitely a statement color, so when tastes change it might fall out of favor.

How would you use Tangerine Tango in a child's room? As merely an accent or a major part of the palette?
