Introducing Tangerine Tango–Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year

Still no sign of those fun Pantone coffee mugs that I posted about last week, but Mother’s Day is several days away, so there’s still time for my loved ones to bestow those beauties on me (hinting LOUDER). And speaking of Pantone colors, did you know that Pantone’s 2012 color of the year is Tangerine Tango?

Over the past several years, orange has grown in popularity, so I thought it might be fun to embrace this bold color in a series of posts. It also might be fun to embrace it in my own home. You know, splash a little orange here and there to spruce up the place. Adding color to your home is an inexpensive and fun way to brighten up your interior spaces. So as I explore this color, think about ways to use Tangerine Tango in your own homes. You can use this high-impact color on pillows, bedspreads, and accessories to liven up any room or paint a piece of furniture or a wall to add a dramatic burst of color. The possibilities are endless. And I’ll show you a few ideas that I have up my sleeve as I Tangerine Tango around my own home. So, come on, everyone, let’s tango!
