2012 Color of the Year

And the winner is: Tangerine Tango! Pantone, the world authority on color and provider of color systems used by companies around the world to make everything from paint to cosmetics, has picked Tangerine Tango as the chosen color for 2012.

According to Pantone, “it’s a spirited reddish orange to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward in the new year.” Expect to see it everywhere in 2012 from kitchen appliances and home accessories to clothing and nail polish.

While it might be hard to incorporate the exact Tangerine Tango color into your garden, try adding plants with orange-colored flowers and foliage to be on the cutting edge of style this year. pantone.com.
