missjunebug loves color. Her little hacienda is a living ode to color that would make Pablo Neruda proud. She and Mr.JB just finished having their kitchen painted with a lovely Dorset Gold and Claret Red. Thanks Dos Amigos! missjunebug is still in the process of putting her kitchen back together, but the glowing, colorful result was well worth the temporary inconvenience.
Speaking of a colorful result, Pantone the color gurus to the world have declared Tangerine Tango the 2012 Color of the Year. Cool that! missjunebug loves, loves, loves all things orange: Texas Longhorns, citrus, J. Crew sweaters, pumpkins, poppies, monarch butterflies, carrots, the sun, Orange Julius, birds of paradise, candy corn middles, sunsets, sunrises, K-Orange soda, Cheez-Its, and autumn leaves.
What’s so great about orange? In a word: ENERGY. The color selectors at Pantone are hopeful Tangerine Tango will recharge and motivate and move us forward in 2012. Good idea, Pantone Peeps! missjunebug thinks we could all use that right about now, considering the doldrums we’ve been languishing in for the last few years. The magnetic red-orange of Tangerine Tango will no doubt shake things up in the fashion and style world and missjunebug is happy to get on board with that. Here’s what one of the color gurus, whose name (Leatrice!) is as colorful as Tangerine Tango is red-orange, had to say about Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year:
“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “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.”
Well said, Leatrice!
With such a color leading our way through 2012, it just has to be a great year!
missjunebug says, “Get your Tangerine Tango on!” and Happy 2012!
