A Brave New Color

Winter hasn't started yet and the new trends for next year are already on our doorsteps. Pantone has just named Honeysuckle not only as 2011 Color of the Year, but also as the defining hue for Spring. Courageous and confident, this reddish pink is a dynamic and uplifting color. “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”

Honeysuckle will add a lively flair to any interior space with the use of accessories, like in this stunning living room with the use of the floral carpet and trimmings throughout. If you're looking for an inexpensive way to perk up any room in your home, paint a wall in this eye-catching color for a dynamic burst of energy.

This upbeat color is great when used on large areas like a foyer of a house or an apartment. In the bathroom, it can add an unexpected fun touch like this beautiful sink vanity. “Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer,” affirms Eiseman. Watch out, this color can become addictive.

re Colours - I looooooove colour - not frenetically though!! but well thought out 'pops' of colour can look brilliant. Also, have always loved honeysuckle pink/Old Centifolia rose colour mixed with green - stunning combo - nature knows best. Always rely on plants, trees, flowers (how I adore flowers) - oceanic colours - shells, driftwood & blue sky - am NOT a black mondo grass sort of person.
