Tangerine Tango - Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year

Not quite orange, not quite red describes Pantone's selected Color of the Year for 2012. Tangerine Tango boasts an orange with a lot of depth to it. A mix of exotic, energetic, warmth, and friendliness, the reddish orange provides an attention grabbing hue. Expect to see the vivid shade popping up in fashion, cosmetics, and home decor.

Designers seem to appreciate this year's choice. Orange has become popular as a color staple.

Tangerine replaces Honeysuckle from 2011, Turquoise from 2010, Mimosa from 2009, Blue Iris from 2008, and Chili Pepper from 2007 since the inception of "Color of the Year".
