Pantone just announced their 2012 color of the year and kids, it’s a doozy! Tangerine Tango is “a spirited reddish orange”… kinda like the sofa in our guest room, perhaps?? Oh snap! It is! Nothing like a little color validation from Pantone. Anyway, here’s what they have to say about this fiery new hue:

“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.”

Oh, they also say that “Tangerine Tango is a bit exotic, but in a very friendly, non-threatening way”, in case you were worried. So. What do you guys think? Are you ready to dance the Tangerine Tango*?
