2012 Color of the Year

Tangerine Tango was recently announced by Pantone
(The Color People) as the 2012 Color of the Year.
What does this mean for you as a consumer?
Well, along with 2011's color "Honeysuckle" (a vibrant pink),
it heralds a move away from subtle earth tones,
such as the sands and soft greens,
instead moving toward vibrant, happy colors.

Tangerine Tango is a bold reddish orange, full of energy.
But don't think pumpkin! This is a hue that plays well with others.

We've already seen it pop up in the fashion world...

...and in home decor, as small accents...

...or as the focal point for the entire room.

Brides have already begun asking for orange tones for their wedding flowers.
Either as a bouquet composed of tints, tones and hues of orange,
or mixed with other, complimentary colors such as blue,
this is a choice for the bride (or consumer) who wants to make a statement!
