So according to Pantone, Tangerine Tango (orange) is the color of the year. But I have to admit, I have been seeing a TON of green lately. Have you seen House Beautiful this month?? They dedicated an entire issue to green. From "green" products and raw materials to fun green fashion, paint colors and fabrics; green seems to be the place to be. It can work as a neutral or be the "pop" of color. It doesn't matter what shade of green either - it can be a soft pale green to very intense kelly green and seemingly every shade in between!
