Last week Pantone officially announced the “it” color of 2011, “honeysuckle pink”!
Each year, Pantone, the global leader in color design sets the standards for identifying & matching colors, based on polling designers around the world.
From a recent article from Durability and Design , “honeysuckle is described as a vibrant, energetic hue.” The new color reflects the shift in mood from 2010. Pantone’s executive director stated “Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going—perfect to ward off the blues. ” Visions of honeysuckle pink dreams are showing up already in new nail polish colors, Spring dresses & household items such as decorative accents, pillows and even appliances!
The new fresh pink brings a vibrant energy into the coming year, don’t you agree?
Pinks are always classic with navy, greys & bright orange, in my opinion. Pantone may have picked pink as the “it” color, but navy’s are going to be a big part of 2011. Remember all those blue and white ginger jars from the past? Well, they’re still classic and now considered the modern twist to pink walls.
Turquoise was the Pantone 2010 color of the year, but will continue to look fabulous with hot pinks into 2011.
Loving this pink & turquoise room Erin featured on House of Turquoise recently.
