Pantone, a worldwide authority on color, has been forecasting a “color of the year” since 2000. Pantone experts use psychology and studies of color trends of various industries to come up with their choice–a color to complement the spirit of the times.
For 2012, they chose Tangerine Tango. Pantone describes this color as a spirited reddish-orange hue to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward. Orange is a color associated with hope and optimism by combining the passion of red and the friendliness of yellow. “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it” says Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s executive director. This color is expected to be used in fashion, film, art and other industries. It will be no surprise if this vibrant color takes the wedding industry by storm.
Whatever your theme may be Tangerine Tango will have a place in your celebration. Here we’ve gathered a few designs that will show the versatility of this color.
