It's a blue... it's a green...no! It's Tangerine Tango! That's right, a vibrant shade of reddish orange has been named Pantone's color of the year for 2012. Says the brand's executive director, "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.” Orange, has certainly been gaining in popularity over the last few years, and we're certainly feeling the energy of shade in depths of december.
We also think the color would look amazing in a child's room either juxtaposed with some bright florals and polka dots, or an earthy green, like in the nursery below! (nursery via ohdeedoh)
