Tangerine Tango, The Colour of 2012

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,”
“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.”
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

Pantone recently revealed The Color of the Year for 2012:
CARLSTADT, N.J., Dec. 8, 2011 – Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company (NASDAQ: XRIT), and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced PANTONE® 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, a vivacious, enticing hue, as the color of the year for 2012.
The 2011 color of the year, PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle, encouraged us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.

I think Pantone would like us to...
"Dance into the New Year with this vivacious and appealing reddish orange"
Ok. I'll try.

Hmmm ... . Perhaps 2012 could use a' burst of colour' to kick start the economy. Tangerine Tango would certainly brighten a room.
