Pantone Color of the Year 2012

Pantone has just announced their color of the year for 2012 – Tangerine Tango! It’s orange, it’s red, it’s hot! Pantone describes it this way:

“The 2011 color of the year, Honeysuckle, encouraged us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.”


You can expect to see lots of this color in stores coming soon. Fashion designers recently showed a lot of hot reddish orange in their Spring collections and cosmetics manufacturers have used it for lipsticks and nail polish. A great way to add a pop of color to your interior spaces is to look for Tangerine Tango in pillows, tabletop accessories and of course, art prints! ColorBee will definitely use this spicy color in more than a few new prints next year.
