Pantone Color Institute®, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industry, has announced Tangerine Tango as the 2012 color of the year. The color, described as a “honeysuckle hue,” is vibrant and full of energy.

“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.”

Don’t be afraid to incorporate this vibrant hue into your home decor! Small touches of bright hues can add energy and visual interest without overwhelming a space. Accessories, pillows and accent walls are great areas where bright colors can be used appropriately.
