Pantone Color Institute News
From sweet smelling peach and energizing coral to vibrant tangerine, spicy ginger and earthy terra cotta the meaning of orange is inexorably linked to the sensations of radiant energy, heat and the glowing presence of the setting sun. Taking its heat from two radiant sources, red and yellow, orange is perceived as the hottest of all shades. No matter where or how it is used, even a small touch of vitamin-enriched orange adds liveliness to any color palette.
With the demand for orange continuing to grow, we expanded our range of oranges. In the 210 new additions to our PANTONE FASHION, HOME + INTERIORS palette we have added many different variations of this versatile and convivial shade including hot and radiant orange tones such as Dragon Fire and Exotic Orange, an assortment of spicy shades with greater color depth including Aura Orange and Chili Oil, more toned down hues suffused with brown with names like Honey Ginger and Spice Route, a greater variety of golden oranges, i.e. Mango Mojito and Autumn Blaze and some more coral influenced hues like Blooming Dahlia and Peach Echo.
