Pantone's 2012 Color- Tangerine Tango

Provocative Tangerine Tango (Pantone 17-1463) is an enticing juicy orange, it's a vivacious & appealing refresher to enliven anyone's outlook for this spring. Here is why Pantone picked the reddish-Orange for this year's color of the year:

Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge & move forward.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic & 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 & adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness & warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat & energy.”

Over the past several years, orange has grown in popularity & acceptance among designers & consumers alike. A provocative attention-getter, Tangerine Tango is especially appealing in men’s & women’s fashion. Fashion designers featured in the PANTONE Fashion Color Report Spring 2012, including Tommy Hilfiger, Nanette Lepore, Cynthia Steffe by Shaun Kearney, Elie Tahari & Adrienne Vittadini, are incorporating this attractive orange into their spring collections. A fun, lively take on a traditional autumnal hue, Tangerine Tango will surely carry through to fall fashion as well.

A winner in cosmetics because of its versatility, Tangerine Tango is a bit exotic, but in a very friendly, non-threatening way. Add a sultry flair to lips, cheeks & nails with Tangerine Tango. An unexpected eye shadow color, Tangerine Tango is a complementary opposite that flatters blue or green eyes. When paired with brown eyes, it brings out an amber cast.

Energize interior spaces with Tangerine Tango patterned home accessories. Pillows, bedspreads & tabletop accessories in this high-impact hue add spice to any room. Or incorporate Tangerine Tango appliances & 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.
