Pantone Color of the Year 2012

December 8, 2012 – Pantone has announced the new Color of the Year for 2012: PANTONE® 17-1463 Tangerine Tango. Haven’t heard about a color of the year, you say? Well, basically, it’s Pantone’s fault that everything last year was pink. Interior decorating, fashion, art – everything is influenced by what Pantone says is the “it” color for that year. Thankfully this year isn’t a skewed pink honeysuckle – seriously, where are honeysuckles pink? have they never been to the south? – but it is a bright orange. I’m not sure how I feel about that one yet.
