Fun Christmas Colors

I love the color palettes from Porter House Design.  I've decided on two Christmas trees next year.  Too much fun decorating!

Must Have Color of 2012 Is...

Drum roll please.... Tangerine Tango!

"The 2011 color of the year, Honeysuckle, encouraged us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor," writes Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward."
Pantone makes the announcement every year and (literally) sets the tone for the year's design color schemes from wall paint to bridesmaid dresses.

"Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it," writes Eiseman. "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." 

Let the tango begin.
