Pantone Color of the Year for 2012: Tangerine Tango
Pantone has named the color of the year for 2012 and it is Tangerine Tango.  The color trends from Pantone influence both fashion and design. The color of the year make its way into wedding linens, bridesmaids dresses, invitations and favors so we can look forward to seeing more of this cheerful color. Accoridng to Pantone executive direction, Tangerine Tango was selected as the 2012 Cololor of the Year because it sends a message of encouragement and builds on the ideas of courage and action.   The color is inspirational and encoursage actions rather than acceptance. Apparently, tangerine hued garments were showcased for the Spring/Summer 2012 season.   If you look for images of tangerine weddings in Google Images you will see tangerine colorboards with  tiffany blue, green and bright pink accents.   Images of cakes, invitations, centerpieces and attire are all available so if you are considering tangerine as a primary or accent color, Google Images may be a good starting point.  Below are a couple of our favorite images. For 2010 the color was turquoise and for 2011 it was honeysuckle. Both colors have been very popular this year so it will be interesting to see if Tangerine Tango or shades of tangerine become popular in event design.
