Pantone’s Tangerine Tango Sherwin Williams

Color equivalents from Benjamin Moore were first in this series.

Today, I’d like you to meet the three top contenders from Sherwin Williams that most closely match Pantone’s 2012 color of the year, Tangerine Tango. They are:

  1. SW1623 Fire Island
  2. SW1616 Valencia
  3. SW6882 Daredevil

HEX codes included for your convenience. Hope you find this information useful. Go forth and color!

  1. Have you really? I’ve never spec’d any of them before — didn’t even notice them before to be honest. That’s one of the most positive things about color trends, IMO. Can bash around the pro’s and con’s of trends for days on end and the novelty of the colors of the year announcements always fades rather quickly — but what happens is a few *new* colors are brought to the attention of mass consciousness.

    Slave to trends or not, it’s entertaining to play with the new colors called out. Personally I enjoy the fun factor and I think it’s worth being open to at least the idea of color as trends.
