Comparing Recent Pantone Colors of the Year

Saturday, May 5, 2012

I bought something today in Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year Tangerine Tango.  I will post about it tomorrow because it is too dark to take photos right now, but it got me thinking about recent Colors of the Year.

2009's Mimosa


2010's Turquoise


2010's Honeysuckle


2012's Tangerine Tango

I love the wallpaper in each of these photos.  Which Color of the Year do you like best?  Vote in the poll at the top of my sidebar.

I am anxious to see the results!  I am planning on converting our guest bedroom into a small library.  I need feedback!

Until next time...

  1. I simply cannot choose just one!

  2. I love that you're going to have a library! I've always wanted to be Belle from Beauty and the Beast and have a library. :)

  3. Hi RJ! A library, how exciting! Those are some lovely snaps and I love the tangerine color.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. Oh YES,YES,YES! You will LOVE a library! We spend most of our relaxing time in ours...LOVE,LOVE,LOVE it! I will never own one of those electronic gizmos for books. I LOVE hardcover "REAL BOOKS"! and love adding to mine library.
    I chose the 2010's Turquoise because I find it the most calming of the colors...

  5. Ooooh, I can't wait to see how you make that room a library. How dreamy! As far as a color choice, Pantone makes it so hard...they're all such lovely colors. But I'm a pink girl so I'll go with honeysuckle. Going to vote now :)

  6. Ricki Jill,
    I am really into the color turqouise right now. In fact, I am decorating a room in that color. I like all the wallpaper colors, especially the pink and the turqouise.

  7. I love all of them! I can't choose one.

  8. I want every one of those wallpapers! How disorienting do you think it would be if each room of my house were a different color-of-the-year color? I think the Mimosa and Turquoise are my two favorites.

  9. It's hard to choose but I never tire of yellow, so that's my vote.

  10. Turquoise but all of them looks good!

  11. I just voted for the turquoise. Love the color. :)

  12. Well, I had to vote for the turquoise. I've always loved it ~ even before it was declared 2011's color of the year. :-) I've never been an orange type person but it's growing on me! The corals and turquoise are gorgeous together. Yellow is a color I really like but I'm not a pink person...go for the reds!

    Can't wait to see what you're creating.

  13. I always gravitate towards blue so I voted for the turquoise. The yellow would be a very close second. The wallpaper in every pic is stunning. I love a big pattern that makes a statement. A library sounds positively charming. I'm sure it will be perfect. Hope all is well with you. Thank you for stopping by my blog and also for your nice comments. Have a wonderful week!

  14. They're running out of color wheel segments.....(although if they go back to a blue or green tone, I'm happy). :)

  15. Those are such pretty papers. There's something so cheerful about each one.

  16. I voted for the turquoise, but have to agree that I like all the wallpapers and would even enjoy all of them except the pink one (too wild for me). Great pictures you found of each of them.
