Pantone Color of the Year: Tangerine Tango

Pantone has named "Tangerine Tango" this year's color! "A spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward. Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it," says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. Orange has become much more popular with designers and consumers in the past few years in fashion, interior design and even in cosmetics. It's bright and energetic yet very compatible with so many other colors. Tangerine Tango pairs with fuchsias, blues, grays, almost anything! Be bold and paint a room! Pair it with a leopard print! Wear a tangerine kiss! Not so daring? Add a little to your room here or there with a lamp or pillow!
