Did you see that coming?
Yes, Pantone named Tangerine Tango as color of the year for 2012.
I have to say it does not surprise me as I've seen a lot of orange around lately.
Last year remember the color of the year was honeysuckle which was really a bold pink.
The year before the color was turquoise.
I have both pink and turquoise in my home and seriously considered painting a small table orange
last summer but went with periwinkle instead.
(I thought for sure periwinkle was going to be this year's color)
Orange is not a favorite color of mine but I have to admit a little of it can really liven up a room.
Just look at how exciting that punch of orange is in that neutral space shown above.
It adds excitement to what would be a rather bland space otherwise.
Same here...the orange touches really make this room a wow.
The color makes a room that might other wise look too formal...exciting!
It looks great mixed with blue.
Even an orange sofa looks fresh.
Yes, orange and turquoise is a winning combination.
Just a touch looks modern and fresh.
I even like this whole room of it.
This is a color I wouldn't think I'd really want in my home but I love all these examples
so maybe it might find it's way in.
Orange pillows on my pink sofa? Perhaps. I love orange and pink together.
Will you be adding the 2012 color of the year to your home?
