The focus today is color, coming right from the globally recognized color gurus themselves, Pantone. Pantone has chosen a powerful punch of a red-orange for the Colour of The Year, and it’s called Tangerine Tango!
It’s meant to reflect a revitalizing energy that we all need and crave as we pull out of this tough economic stint. I can’t help but feel a bit peppier when I look at it! According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, the shade is “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, with a lot of depth to it. 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.”
Tangerine Tango is definitely a cross-genre trend color that looks as gorgeous in fashion and beauty as it does in interior and industrial design. Try adding a pop of fire to your nails or lips, or a fun accent to your living space.
