As a Nashville based Color Consultant, it’s my job to pay close attention to the color trends coming down the pike. Those trends affect what we will see in the stores in the coming year and what options you will have in fashion and home decor. Scant hours ago, Pantone announced that Tangerine Tango is the 2012 Color of the Year!
Following on the heels of a vibrant and uplifting color like Honeysuckle Pink, Tango Tangerine is a vibrant, exciting choice for the new “it” color in fashion and design. It’s a reddish-orange, like a beautiful sunset.
This rich color is a natural to pair with Benjamin Moore’s 2012 Color of the Year, Wythe Blue!
Keep your eye out for tangerine home accessories like kitchen mixers, pillows, and bedding – it’s coming!
I recently used it as the punchy accent color in this Nashville living room.

Just a couple of months ago, I wrote a post called “Orange Is the New Red.” Pantone obviously agrees! So, what’s your honest opinion about Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2012? Love it or leave it?
