Pantone Color of 2012

I always look forward to Pantone's color pick of the year. Last year, you may remember their choice of Honeysuckle. For 2012, they've decided on Tangerine Tango, which I have to say, I really like. 

It's fun to add a pop of bright color to your decor, from a chair to a clock or a new print... or try being a little bold by painting an entire wall. 

Pantone refers to Tangerine Tango as a "vivacious, enticing hue" and have picked the color based on trends, fashion and what's current in the marketplace.  

As stated from the guys at Color Wheel Pro, "Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine and the tropics." It's an enthusiastic color that exudes confidence...

How great would an orange Big Chill refrigerator be? It's a color that demands attention so use it wisely- to highlight rather than overdo, and it will endure. 

So pretty and inspiring...Stay tuned for tomorrow's post. It's one of my favorites.
