Pantone Announces 2012 Color of the Year

Pantone has announced their 2012′s color of the year. For 2012, they’ve selected “Tangerine Tango”, a vibrant and saturated shade of orange.

Their choice is very important to trends in the market in all areas of fashion, decor and any industry influenced by color.

The choice of Tangerine Tango is a somewhat natural evolution of the somewhat retro color palette that Pantone has been setting the past few years. In 2010 the color of the year was Turquoise, and then for this year it has been a shade of pink called Honeysuckle. We’ve often seen shades of orange used as an accent color in palettes with those two colors the past two years.

A beautiful example of Pantone’s 2010 through 2012 picks being used in the same product line is Lily Bee’s “Head Over Heels” line from CHA Summer 2011 that was recently released.  Continue Reading →
