By AYLIN ZAFAR | December 9, 2011
The color specialists at Pantone hope the orangey-red hue will give us optimism for the next 12 months. The world is about to look a lot more vivid: the Pantone Color Institute has named “Tangerine Tango,” a radiant red-orange, as the top color of 2012. The color experts have been amping up their selections each year, with the serene and calming turquoise in 2010 giving way to 2011’s honeysuckle, a warm, reddish-pink color meant to lift spirits and instill confidence.
