According to Pantone, "Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Institute tells us more about the choice for 2012:
Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. 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.
One great quote I found about Tangerine Tango came from Apartment Therapy: "This color works easily with white and warm neutrals such as creams and gray-browns and can look fantastic with other strong colors - its great in combination with pale bud, other "true" oranges (think pumpkin) and also army green."
The 2011 Pantone Color of the Year was Honeysuckle, which according to Pantone, encouraged us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor.
I am excited about Tangerine Tango and will work on a few inspiration boards! This such a great wedding color that can be incorporated into any wedding season and grooms will love this color.
