Color of the Year- HONEYSUCKLE!

Pantone LLC, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced  Honeysuckle (PANTONE 18-2120), as the color of the year for 2011.




This  vibrant, energetic hue is also a dominant color in Fall Winter 2011 Fashions. I am so glad Honeysuckle is back in vogue....its always been one of my favorite color. In between red and pink, this hue possesses the qualities of both :  the 'femininity' &  softness of pink and vigor & energy of Red. 
This uplifting and dynamic reddish pink is perfect color to ward off those blues! Its nostalgic yet encouraging  & uplifting; sweet an& Delicious yet strong & powerful! 


It will surely produce a healthy glow when worn by men or women. This 'Alive' color is striking & eye catching, perfect for both day & night. It works great in womens' apparel, accessories and cosmetics as well as  men's shirts, ties and sports wear. Its not just restricted to fashion wear but also interior spaces.  Use of honeysuckle patterned cushions, bed spreads, throws, table top accessories, or small appliances would add a lively flair to any room. Or you can paint a wall or a section in any room to create a dynamic burst of energy. An entire room painted in Honeysuckle though,  would make it over whelming and over powering. 
So, go ahead and experiment with this vigorous, engaging hue. 


Here's a lovely collection of Honeysuckle items that I've curated. To read more about the featured items or to shop, follow this link:

  2. Have just read about Honeysuckle as a colour - it has always been a favourite of mine as a hedgerow flower! Thanks for the info.

    We're now both fellow team members on the Etsy Success forum suggesting we follow each other's blogs and I'll certainly be doing so to you. Perhaps you'd like to return the favour for me? You can read me at www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com and then, if you've found it interesting, maybe visit my Etsy shop at www.coldhamcuddlies.etsy.com. Look forward to meeting at both sites! All the best. Isobel
