TANGERINE TANGO
2012 Color of the Year

The "it" color of 2012 as decided by PANTONE ® is Tangerine Tango. What is PANTONE® and what does this mean to you? PANTONE® is know worldwide as the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer. It will provide a fun and fresh way to  breathe some new life into your house and get it sold fast!

Let's Look at a few ways this color can really work throughout your home. It makes a terrific accent color.

Subtly used in the curtains and a few key decorative items and then on the rug to tie the whole room together. This is the perfect example of how to use this juicy summer color.  


When staging a home we always try to suggest neutral colors with pops of bright accent colors. Tangerine Tango is a GREAT accent color. You want the home buyers to be able to imagine their personal belongs in the home and that is often hard for them to do in a room full of color.

This is what most would call going overboard. The key to home staging is you want to choose colors and aesthetics that are pleasing to the majority. You want an inviting curb appeal for your home...you can only make one first impression!

Here we are taking the PANTONE® Color Tangerine Tango to the next level. It is more than an accent but somehow it works nicely. In this situation the home’s interior designer used Tangerine Tango as a neutral coloring making the room feel light and airy. While I wouldn’t suggest this for a home staging it is a look than can be easily diy achieved in your home design.

Tangerine Tango is a fabulous color!!  I've been seeing it everywhere.  You are so right, though...needs to be used with restraint!
