Pantone Names Tangerine Tango 2012 Color of the Year

Vibrant color to dominate kitchen and bath category in the coming months


Pantone's Tangerine Tango to dominate kitchen and bath category in 2012.

Pantone has announced that its 2012 color of the year is Tangerine Tango. This reddish-orange hue will give consumer products the shot of energy and boldness they need,especially in the kitchen and bath category. Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is already appearing in designer showrooms. Here are just a few examples:

Pyrolave surfaces can be ordered in similar radiant sunset shades, adding impact and exotic flair to any décor. From residential and commercial kitchens to bathrooms, tabletops, swimming pools, fireplace facades and outdoor living spaces, the glazed lava stone surfaces are perfectly at home in contemporary or traditional settings.

Victoria + Albert’s freestanding tubs, while regal in white, take on a custom look when painted in this daring color. The tubs are made from eco-friendly Englishcast®, which is easy to decorate using either oil or water based paints.

For a quick Tangerine Tango fix, Atlas Homewares offers its vibrant Indochine series of knobs and pulls. Inexpensive and easy to install, they add instant, high-voltage style.

Tangerine Tango can be incorporated into a space in a variety of ways, from a wall color to small accessories like pillows, bedspreads and tabletop pieces, or with larger appliances and electronics.
