Color of the Year 2011 – Pantone’s Honeysuckle

PANTONE® is the global authority on color, and has named PANTONE® 18-2120 Honeysuckle the color of the year for 2011.  It’s a reddish pink color that is stimulating and vibrant,  I love to wear this color;  it makes any complexion glow.  In interior design, it’s uplifting and has a burst of energy – makes any space happy.

Honeysuckle is a good choice for this year – when uplifting, vibrant, happy colors are needed in large doses.  Last year’s color was turquoise, calm and tranquil.  We’ll see lots of this engaging hue used in fashion, and accessories for women and men.  In the home market there will be table top accessories (like tablecloths and plates), candles, throws, rugs, and fabrics.  Are you thinking about buying a few of these accessories as an accent color? maybe a few throw pillows or candles? I’m thinking about the whole room painted Honeysuckle…..

  1. I LOVE THIS! Pantone colors are all so fabulous and Honeysuckle is a prime example! We love it so much that we made it our color of the week and put together a fabulous outfit on our blog to show how to dress wearing Pantone’s Honeysuckle using a complementary color palette. You can take a look at it here http://www.weartostandout.com/blog/pantone-honeysuckle and tell us what you think! xoxo, WearToStandOut
