time to tango

Exciting news in the world of color…The Pantone 2012 Color of the Year is Pantone 17-1463 Tangerine Tango.

So, what’s our take on Tangerine Tango…it’s bold, but we like it and after creating these inspiration boards, we are on the verge of loving it. Though orange is not our favorite color, splashes of it are bold and dramatic, and beautiful. And, this spirited reddish-orange can inspire and uplift all areas of your life – home, fashion and your walk down the aisle.

Just like Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® said, “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.”
