And the 2012 Color of the year is....

  According to Pantone, the 2012 Color of the Year is Tangerine Tango.


I love this color.  It has such energy and vibrancy.  Even just adding a touch of Tangerine can have a big visual impact.


There are just a couple of hints of Tangerine in this kitchen, but look how refreshing and alive this eating space now looks.


How about this office.  Just the inner part of the bookcase is Tangerine, and the desk lamp, paired with white and gray (two neutrals) looks fun and somewhat playful.


 

Now look at these two bedrooms.  The first one is very subtle, with only the bedding colored in the Tangerine color.  Whereas the second picture has a greater vibrancy, because the color is more saturated.  But what makes this color work in the bedroom (second picture) is keeping the other colors in the either neutral (white) or complimentary (blues).

Here are some more great uses for 2012's Color of the Year:


Lastly I have included more colors from Pantone's 2012 collection.  Let me know what your favorite color is.  My is a tie between Sodalite Blue and Cabaret.



Have a great day!
