It’s my favorite time of year.“Holidays?” you ask. Not exactly, although they are a delightful diversion to the everyday. It's the time of year when PANTONE selects their “color of the year” and their pick for 2011 does not disappoint. PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle, is a strong reddish pink said to “lift spirits and impart confidence to meet life's ongoing challenges.”I, for one, look forward to seeing Honeysuckle pop up on everything from throw pillows to lip gloss in the coming months.
There are already a few ways you can bring Honeysuckle into your world.Dessy, who makes delightful bridesmaid and special occasion dresses, offers PANTONE WEDDING where color coordinating your entire affair is as easy as clicking swatches.Or, make a statement in your home by painting one wall (or a whole room!) Honeysuckle with PANTONE Paints.
Come Spring, I intend to retire my Essie “Merino Cool” nail polish for whatever is the best match to this cheery color.
