Color of the year 2012

The official "color of the year" by the Pantone (the world renowned authority on color) is:


Dance into the New Year with this Vivacious and Appealing Reddish Orange

 Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Institute says:
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.”

Watch this video for some great Tangerine Tango fashion finds and for more information on Pantone...

Here are some ways to incorporate this blood orange into your home...

Love the burst of color on these Dining Chairs with this neutral room.

Sep/Oct 2011
Add a bold accent wall or interior door...even your front door!

Adding a few new pillows or accessories is a great way to incorporate a new color into your home.

I look forward to pairing this hue with some unexpected colors like Amethyst or Emerald.  Or bringing it in as a pop of color to a neutral space. 
What do you think of this color?

I love this color! Kind of like an Hermes orange. Maybe?
