Color Crush: Tangerine Tango


 In early January, Pantone announced that 2012's color of the year is tangerine tango!  According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive direction of the institute, " Tangarine Tango is reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset" and "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." This color has me crushing hard.












What color has you falling in love?  Happy Weekend loves!  I hope it is filled with lots of relaxation and inspiration!

  25. Hi Sam : )

    I was thinking about this hue earlier this week when my latest book, "Fashion Illustration 1930 - 1970", arrived and I fell hard in love with the book cover. It is absolutely delightful. Love the tangerine/burnt orange hue right now, too.

  29. Przyjaźń jest jak miłość kto je rozwinął w sobie wie bo poznał je przez doświadczenie.Przyjaźń może być jednostronna jak opisana w Biblii: Jezusa do Judasza, który gdyby ją miał o życie swoje by dbał. Po co więc przyjaźń?

  31. I used to despise orange, and now I can't get enough of it!! I hear Tory Burch is a big fan of the color, and I'm a big fan of hers! Love all of these mango tango inspired photos- great post!

  32. I've never been that into orange (I think its because I have black hair and it always made me think of halloween together) but tangerine is everywhere lately and its so growing on me! That last necklace is GORG!

  33. I agree -- I"ve never been more obsessed with tangerine! It's so great that it's the color of the year. Lately, like most people, I am gravitating towards blush tones and pastels. SO feminine and chic.
