color of the year

Must pay some homage to the Pantone color of the year for 2012 (despite it being one of my lesser favorite hues!) Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, has been selected this year and is touted by Pantone’s executives as one of the best ever. “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “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.” After stumbling upon these lovely pieces, I have a feeling that the warm shade may grow on me.

So. Will you learn to tango?
