Pantone has once again released its color of the year, and for 2012, it is a bright and bold orange named “tangerine tango”. Here is how Pantone describes it:
“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, 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.”
Pantone tells us that you will see this color used in fashion designs and cosmetics, including lipstick, cheeks and nail polish as well as eye shadow(!). It will continue to carry through as an accent in the home and office. And of course, you can always find tangerine in flower colors, including exotic looking roses, cheerful gerbera daisies and bright hot lilies to name a few.
Welcome 2012 and bring on the energy boost of Tangerine Tango!
