According to the Pantone Color Institute, Tangerine Tango, an orange red, is the color of 2012. This is a bright, energetic, inviting color that would be great in a room in your home! You could even use this color for accent walls, pillows or accessories to give your room a little pop of color.
Pantone Color Institute does intense research each year to pick its top color of the year. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says that the color choice is, “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.”
So if you’re looking to add color to your home this coming year, you may want to consider using Tangerine Tango!
