2012 Color of the Year

PANTONE announced the color of the year for 2012. Their choice is Tangerine Tango (17-1463) which according to their press release, is ‘a vivacious, enticing hue’ that will ‘provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward’. “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “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.” As with their Color of the Year choices of Mimosa (a yellow) in 2009, Turquoise (blue) in 2010, and Honeysuckle (pink) in 2011, we can expect to start seeing a lot of orange in fashion and interior design in the new year.

Orange happens to be one of my very favorite colors!  Lucky me :)
What do you think? Will it be popping up in your home and wardrobe?
