PANTONE recently declared Tangerine Tango as the 2012 Color of the Year. If you don’t know what PANTONE is, that’s okay. Allow me to explain. PANTONE is a company best known for its matching system (PMS), which is a color-standardization guide primarily used in the printing industry. They provide PANTONE Guides that look a lot like the paint sample strips you get at a home improvement store, and it essentially works the same way. For example, if a company uses PANTONE 19-1664, or True Red, in its logo, they can rest assured that no matter how many different printers are used to print it, the red will stay true to its form. Make sense? Every year PANTONE chooses a color of the year. The color is based on trends seen in fashion and interior design, as well as the general spirit of the times. According to PANTONE, Tangerine Tango provides the “energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.” I know you’re wondering, “Why should I care?” Well, you should care because it means that Tangerine Tango is the new "it" color. It can be seen in the spring lines of many notable fashion designers including Tommy Hilfiger, Nanette Lepore, Cynthia Steffe by Shaun Kearney, Elie Tahari, and Adrienne Vittadini. And it’s popping up in accessories, pillows, and fabrics all over the place. Incorporating Tangerine Tango in the art you choose for your home is the easiest way to modernize and energize your space. I’ve even taken the liberty of compiling a few of my favorite paintings with this color: [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="237" caption="Divulge I by Sylvia Angeli"]Divulge I by Sylvia Angeli[/caption] [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="Wall Flower I by Sara Abbott"][/caption] [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="267" caption="Pyracantha by Stella Alesi"]Pyracantha by Stella Alesi[/caption] You can see all of our art with varying shades of orange by clicking here.
