Color palettes for 2012 are bold, vivacious and subtly seductive. Color authority Pantone Color Institute drives the trends for fashion and décor and this year their pick for 2012’s color of the year is Tangerine Tango. This reddish orange color is vibrant and energetic, sure to be an attention grabber at any wedding. We are also seeing soft muted pastels, greens, blues and lilacs in fabrics and bolder, vibrant colors like reds, oranges, lime greens and royal blues in decor accents. Black is back as an accent. For example, black sofas are “in” and white are “out” when creating lounges for receptions or post wedding fun.
