With the end of the year in sight we all know that it’s about that time that PANTONE group announces their colour of the year for the upcoming year. Last Thursday December 8th PANTONE announced their colour of the year for 2012 as Tangerine Tango (17-1463). According to their press release this 2012 colour of the year is ‘a vivacious, enticing hue’ that will ‘provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward’. As with their Colour of the Year choices of Mimosa (a yellow) in 2009, Turquoise in 2010, and Honeysuckle (pink) in 2011, we can expect to start seeing a lot of orange in fashion and interior design in the new year.
Inject some of that vivaciousness into your world, be it through decor items, fabrics or a new paint colour. Looking at the Benjamin Moore trends for 2012 try Persimmon (2088-40) from the Urban palette. If you’re looking for something from PARA, try Dancing Flames (P5068-73) or Orange Crush (P 5069-75D)
With this colour we’re reminded again about adding some fun & optimism into our lives. Here’s to 2012!
