2012 Pantone Colour of the Year: Tangerine Tango

The most lusciously fabulous tone of tomato red
has been announced as the Colour of the Year for 2012 by Pantone.

Already a favourite of many, 
this is a happy bright tone of orange which screams confidence, 
enthusiasm & optimism, 
without taking itself too seriously. 
Tangerine Tango is a colour which was very prevalent in the 1960s
~ as in this glorious vintage photograph by Tom Palumbo. 

What goes around, comes around...as they say...
but I'm loving this merry go round.
