Orange as Colour of the Year for 2012: Tangerine Tango. You may have already heard that Tangerine Tango has been singled out as the 2012 color of the year - the one color expected in the next 12 months to have the strongest impact on fashion and home decor. Tangerine Tango provides the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenalin rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy. Orange helps us to restore our energy reserves and gives us a much needed boost in the new year. Tangerine Tango is a spirited reddish orange that is both provocative and attention grabbing.
Orange has already proven to be gaining in popularity with fashion designers and in the beauty industry, but 2012 will see this vibrant colour making its way into our homes, helping us to bring a sense of energy into our interior spaces. From furniture, kitchen appliances and lighting, to flooring, kitchens and bathrooms, using this high-impact hue will add spice to any room. And luckily for us there is no shortage of products for the home in this dynamic colour.
What do you think of this vibrant, energetic colour? Will you be using it in your home this year?
