Introducing Tangerine Tango

“The 2011 color of the year, PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle, encouraged us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigour.  The 2012 Pantone Colour of the year is Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward”.

According to Pantone, “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.”

A provocative attention-getter, Tangerine Tango is especially appealing in men’s and women’s fashion as well as interiors.

Energize interior spaces with home accessories.  Pillows, bedspreads and tabletop accessories in this high-impact hue will add spice to any room. Or incorporate Tangerine Tango in appliances and personal electronics for an unexpected pop of colour.
