If you are a color lover like me then I sure you are always dying to find out what’s the hottest color around. Well look no further because Pantone just released Pantone 2011 color of the year – Pantone 18-2120 Honeysuckle. It doesn’t get more romantic than that and it is perfect for spring. Pantone describes it “Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.” I don’t know if this color alone can infuse you and carry you through the year, but if there ever was a color to do it, this could be it.
I’m not trying to let them do all the talking, but Pantone also states,
“While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.
Honeysuckle is guaranteed to produce a healthy glow when worn by both men and women. It’s a striking, eye-catching hue that works well for day and night in women’s apparel, accessories and cosmetics, and in men’s ties, shirts and sportswear. Add a lively flair to interior spaces with Honeysuckle patterned pillows, bedspreads, small appliances and tabletop accessories. Looking for an inexpensive way to perk up your home? Paint a wall in Honeysuckle for a dynamic burst of energy in the family room, kitchen or hallway.”
I have to agree that I think this color is fabulous since I am a huge fan of pink. Pantone says it works well for fashion especially wedding as well as in interior decor and in packaging. A good thing to keep in mind when deciding on what color of shirt to add to your wardrobe or what color of spring sheets you should get. I personally am suddenly craving some strawberry gelato…wonder why?
