Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2012: Tangerine Tango

Last week Pantone announced its 2012 color of the year! the color is Tangerine Tango!  Pantone describes Tangerine Tango as "a spirited reddish orange that provides the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward."  Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® describes the color as:
“...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.”
With the color orange growing in popularity and acceptance with both consumers and designers. Tangerine Tango will be appealing in fashion, cosmetics and design; these three elements being are an integral part of wedding planning process! We are certain you will see that translate to all things weddings over the next year! 

Are you incorporating this beautiful citrus hue into your color palette?  We would love to see how you will use it.  We have seen the orange paired with blue (a la Florida Gators) with one of our former brides as well as with gold and brown. 

Until next time,
