The wait is over. Pantone has announced the Color of the Year for 2012. Tangerine Tango, I think I love you.

Finally, a brilliant, bold, reddish orange hue to really pack a punch and add that pop of color we have all been seeking. I have fully embraced this color decision and by not only planning to purchase the Color of the Year Mug, but I’ve been finding any way I can to add this hue to my daily wardrobe and home decor. I’m currently on the hunt for the perfect shade of accent pillows for the couch. Pantone, you’ve done it again. I have a feeling 2012 is going to be a bright and colorful year!
