If anyone knows color – its Pantone. Every year, the Pantone Color Institute announces the color for the upcoming year based on trend indicators related everything from fashion to art, music to film and of course, interior office and home design.

Last year, the color was Honeysuckle Rose – a bright and fun pink that managed to show up on the runway and in the homes of millions of people wanting to add a splash of color to their room. This vibrant and engaging reddish orange shade calls to mind deep citrus saturation and summer beach parties.

Executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman explains the allure of Tangerine Tango.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango 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.”
