Honeysuckel has just been named as Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2011! This beautiful shade of pink replaces last year’s turquoise, which was seen as the color of escape. This year, however, honeysuckle is bold and warm, encouraging and uplifting us! According to Pantone, we no longer need to escape, but to find “confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become a part of every day life.”
While I’m not so sure that a gorgeous shade of pink can accomplish all of that, it is bright, happy and easy to add into your home or your wardrobe!
