Have you heard? Pantone has chosen their color of 2012 to be Tangerine Tango.
I feel like I should have a flower in my teeth and do a little snap with my fingers when I say that. haha

It’s a pretty orange-red. “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.” (Pantone press release)
So, will you be jumping on the Tangerine Tango bandwagon this year? I’m usually not a fan of a lot of orange, or tend to follow a trend just because I’m told it will be popular. If I like it, I’ll incorporate it, but if not, then that’s ok too.
I won’t splashing a lot of this vibrant color everywhere, but touches could be pretty.
Like this mood board I played with on Olioboard. I’ve been thinking of redecorating my bedroom with a grey and had a little fun adding a pop of orange, or Tangerine Tango. I do like the pop of color and with a neutral background, it would be easy to change the accent color later on if I wanted.

Surprisingly, this color also goes well with the turquoise/aqua that has been very popular in the past few years. I would have never thought to put these two colors together, but look how pretty this can be. See, you don’t have to change your entire decor just to update it a bit. Just add in a splash here and there and you are done.
What do you think of this color? Do you think you will add a little spice in your home with some Tangerine Tango?
