{Buzz Worthy} Pantone Colour of the Year for 2012: Tangerine Tango

As a celebration stylist, colour scheme inspiration for an event can come from anywhere.  The favourite colour of the guest of a honour, the celebration theme, something from nature such as a flower, fruit or vegetable and from the current colour trends that are evident in interior design and decor.  A little while back, Pantone announced the colour of the year.  The upcoming colour for 2012 is Tangerine Tango!  According to the Pantone website “Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.”  Just what we all need.  A bit of cheerful warmth as we enter into this new year. So to get us all ready for the new year and new colour I thought I would show you some colour boards created by some fabulous individuals to get you inspired.  The colour board above, created by Shandra Ward Signature Design Studio, shows how Tangerine Tango can be used as party of your home decor.  The colour board below shows some personal accessories in Tangerine Tango.

Some colours that you can pair Tangerine Tango up with include navy, aqua, grey, yellow and fushia.  My favourite pairing of Tangerine Tango is with grey, what is yours?

One thing is for sure.  Tangerine Tango is a fun colour that can be infused into home decor, waredrobe and accessories.  Whether you add a little splash of Tangerine Tango with a hand bag or a pair of pumps or use it as the accent colour to your home’s interior design I do hope that it brings you a very bright new year!
