Pantone’s Tangerine Tango vs Benjamin Moore’s Wythe Blue
It’s no secret that both Pantone and Benjamin Moore have announced their selections for Color of the Year. Pantone named Tangerine Tango a spirited reddish orange that will surely provide a jolt of inspirational energy. Benjamin Moore, on the other hand, has selected wythe blue HC-143, a soothing blue-green hue symbolizing tranquility.Pantone’s lively, juicy color is certainly a provocative attention-getter, and is especially appealing as an accent adding that unexpected pop of color.
Benjamin Moore’s everlasting, classic blue hue has universal appeal and is more versatile than you may think. Evoking the sea and sky, wythe blue brings a sense of comfort and stability to any room.
Having trouble deciding which you prefer? I believe the two favorites can coexist, with Tangerine Tango adding an unexpected jolt to the serenity that wythe blue provides a room. Personally I kind of like the combo!
