Even those of us not on the cutting edge of fashion can appreciate a change in color—and this year, the one we can expect to see a great deal of is "honeysuckle." Caught somewhere between an intense pink and red, honeysuckle was chosen as 2011’s color by Pantone—a company known for its system of identifying, matching, and communicating colors to those in the fashion, home design, and graphic design industries. Each year, Pantone polls top graphic designers, fashion, and industry leaders from around the world to forecast the next hit color.
Pantone chose honeysuckle to contradict the bleak economy and an overabundance of bland colors in the marketplace. Honeysuckle is said to conjure feelings of summertime and emanates optimism. Try applying it on a wall to brighten and revitalize your home. Or pick up vases, pillows, or other home accents in honeysuckle to add small splashes of the color throughout your space.
