Pantone Color for 2012

Pantone Color Tangerine Tango

Yep, Pantone selected Tanerine Tango for as the 'it' color of 2012.  I really like orange (a la Hermes), but I can't say that I own a single item that qualifies as "Tanerine Tango". 

In my opinion it is the kind of color that looks amazing on the right person...that might not be me, but I can still appreciate it when I see it done well.

What do you guys think?

With my fair complexion, orange makes me look ill !!..so naturally I choose not to wear it and it's not a color I am attracted to. But in saying that, it can look fantastic on the right person and I love the color of the tangerines combined with the indigo color in the pic..great combination!

Hope all is well with you Elisabeth :)

I would never wear orange, NEVER!
I am way too pale... Just as well, don't care for it anyway. SOUR GRAPES!

Well, it doesn't have to be only clothes, right? Tangerine and other shades of orange can brighten up a room; for instance, in my bathroom, which has light grey tiles, I like putting orange towels on the rack and a small orange towel covers the top of the narrow cabinet where I keep my hairbrush and things.
I tan easily, and somehow my skin manages to maintain a honey tone all year round, so I can get away with wearing bright colours such as yellow (my favourite!) and orange.

Only my favorite color!! I have a whole wardrobe to prove it too and lots of it sprinkled around my house. I have red hair, but somehow it goes really well with my complexion and as Frank Sinatra said "Orange is the Happiest color". I sure think so!!

I love orange to wear with my red hair or a little to brighten up the house in the summer and especially the autumn. The picture is beautiful!

I think it is really pretty. It's different, which I like.

I may not wear it much but I think my home interiors are screaming for it right about now
