Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year
While we don’t necessarily encourage following trends when it comes to your home decor it is always interesting to wait and see what Pantone, the “global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries”, dictates as the Color of the Year.
For 2012 it turned out to be Tangerine Tango!
From a press release Pantone sent out on the 8th:
“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.”
Pantone predicts you’ll see Tangerine Tango from the fashion runways to cosmetic products and even to your home.
Energize interior spaces with Tangerine Tango patterned home accessories. Pillows, bedspreads and tabletop accessories in this high-impact hue add spice to any room. Or incorporate Tangerine Tango appliances and personal electronics for an unexpected pop of color. Looking for an inexpensive way to perk up your home? Paint a wall in Tangerine Tango for a dynamic burst of energy in the kitchen, entryway or hallway.
So what do you think? Should we all go out and buy Tangerine Tango-colored products for our spaces in 2012?
