Colour of the Year - Tangerine Tango

Every December Pantone announces the colour of the year ... and every year at this time I wait in anticipation for this announcement ... will it be a blue, a green, a violet ... well, here it is, just announced, this years colour of the year ...

Tangerine Tango!

Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, provides 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,” 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.”

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.

Are you bold enough to use this colour in your home? I'm not one to go big with trends ... a small accent vase or pillow I can live with ... a room painted in this bold colour, not so much - but hey, it might grow on me!

Happy Decorating!
