2012 Color Trend: Tangerine Tango

This is Part One of Cocoon's 2012 Color Trend Series.

The first of ten of Pantone's Spring 2012 Colors also happens to be the number one color of the year throughout all the seasons. It is Tangerine Tango (Pantone 17-1463). Not everyone can get away with it in large quantities, but if used as an accent piece here and there - it is an eye catcher!
"Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it," says Leatrice Elseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Reminiscent of the radiant shading of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."      (To read more from Pantone about this vibrant color click here.)
We had a ton of fun clipping pictures of clothing, housewares, lifestyle shots, etc. and creating these color sets to help you visualize how you might incorporate Tangerine Tango in your life. Of course, we'll always include a Cocoon product or two so you'll know just where to go if you need it! And if after looking at these inspired boards you feel you must own the ring, click here.

Do any of these boards give you ideas for yourself, your teenage daughter, or your hip mother-in-law? Stay tuned...next week we'll be checking out the color: Margarita. Ole!
