2012 hottest colour


Monday may I paint my condo Tangerine Tango?  Ok painting the whole place Tangerine Tango may be a bit extreme but a wall might do the trick in brightening up the place.  Not to mention it’ll be super trendy since Pantone named it as it’s 2012 colour of the year!  Here’s what they had to say about the colour:

 “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.”  

Now that there is a colour with a story behind it!  If nothing else, this bold orange red colour stands a good chance of putting a smile on ones face, especially on a dreary gray day.  If you’re not ready to take the plunge and utilize Tangerine Tango as a wall paint then perhaps a nice throw or couch pillows in that shade will do the trick.  Neutral colours are cool and all, especially if your looking to sell your place, but if you’re there to stay for awhile then brighten up your space with a splash of this years hottest colour!
