“Energize interior spaces with Tangerine Tango,” states Pantone Color Institute in its annual report.  The color of the year 2012 is Tangerine Tango.  The color of the year is chosen “based on indicators of the current year related to sociology economic and global influences from fashion to art, music to file and interior design.”

Tangerine Tango can be brought into the home with some accessories like throw pillows, bedspreads, tabletops and other fun accessories.  “Sophisticated, but at the same time dramatic, and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “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.”

You can even use it in your kitchen for a bright splash on a wall or in the backsplash.  Or bring in Tangerine Tango in your art work.

This vibrant color will certainly boost your spirits with its full energy quality,  no matter what your mood.
