by Lisa Stewart 11 Jan 2012

Dance into the New Year with this vivacious and appealing reddish orange. PANTONE® announced 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, an energetic, enticing hue, as the color of the year for 2012. Sophisticated but at the same time seductive and dramatic, it is an orange with a lot of depth. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.

Energize interior spaces with Tangerine Tango patterned home accessories. Pillows, bedspreads and tabletop accessories in this high-impact hue add spice to any room. Or incorporate Tangerine Tango appliances and personal electronics for an unexpected pop of color. Looking for an inexpensive way to perk up your home? Paint a wall in Tangerine Tango for a dynamic burst of energy in the kitchen, entryway or hallway.
