Tangerine Tango

 “Orange is the happiest color.” — Frank Sinatra

Pantone’s 2012 color of the year is Tangerine Tango,  a ‘spirited reddish orange’.

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says this about the color:  “It has some sophistication, but at the same time it has energy. It’s a color that symbolizes a need to recharge our batteries. With orange there’s always that undertone of friendliness and warmth.”   Love it!

Pantone’s color of the year influences interiors, fashion, print, and web design trends.  Bring it into your home through accessories to revive your decor this year.  Color affects us all differently, so consider the preferences you have. Orange is said to stimulate energy, appetite and socialization.  In China and Japan, orange is used to symbolize happiness and love.  American Indians associate the color orange with kinship.

Here are a few fun ways to bring tangerine into your home.  We love it with blue!
