Pantone Color of the Year: Tangerine Tango!

The year of Honeysuckle pink is over, and Tangerine Tango is here!


Those color people, Pantone, predict the hot color for the upcoming year. They analyze trends including buying habits and fashion shows, and decide what is going to be “in”. Apparently orange is the next big thing. So of course, I have to run with the inspiration. It was hard to find something in pure tangerine–not too orange, not too red, not too salmon–so there’s a bit of variation.
