Honeysuckle Pink Is The "It" Color For 2011
Pantone, the company that provides the standard language for color communication for the fashion and design industry, announced that Honeysuckle, a shade of pink shown above, is THE color for 2011. (Turquoise was their color pick for 2010.)
Around here, honeysuckle is yellow or white but I guess it comes in pink where Pantone is located. Pantone describes Honeysuckle:
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.
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.
I'm not sure this shade of pink is really my thing, but we could all use a lift and maybe having a dose of this color around will help! Will Honeysuckle be part of your quilting in 2011?
