Orange for optimism, Red for passion: Pantone 2012 Colour of the Year

January 11th, 2012

Tangerine Tango - Pantone 2012 Colour of the year
It’s no mistake that Pantone’s 2012 Colour of the Year combines two of the strongest colour trends. One has been the most enduring on runways over the past few seasons, and another the most embraced and iconic. The name of this colour, to be precise, is Tangerine Tango (otherwise known as Pantone 17-1463), a red-orange which works perfectly for cosmetics and is easier to wear than a true orange. This would also make a stunning, fresh accent in home decor and furnishings.
