The Colour of 2012: Tangerine Tango

Have you noticed more orange out there lately? The colour of 2012 according to Pantone, the world's colour authority, is Pantone 17 - 1463 Tangerine Tango (think orange with red undertones). In the Dec, 8, 2011 press release which announced the colour of the year, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute commented: "Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward. Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic with a lot of depth to it, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. 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." To easily add the look of 2012 to your home, think Tangerine Tango accessories like pillows, throws, dishes, sheets, towels or art....if you are really brave, try painting a wall or two. It would be the perfect colour for a powder room or dining room. What a perfect choice for the Year of the Dragon!
