So, if you haven't heard...
Honeysuckle is the color of the year.
This is what Pantone had to say about it's color choice for 2011...
“Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world.
Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year.
It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.”
I for one have never been about following trends, I design with colors and things I love regardless. Before turquoise became 2010's color of the year, I had been using it in my decor since 2003. I don't know if that made me out of style then...or in the future, because it is one of my favorite colors and I probably will continue to use it. I have to say I was a little surprised that such a bold color as this vivid, sherbet pink is the color of the year, but I at the same time love it! It embraces exactly what I believe...adding a little "pop" of color keeps things in your home whimsical and interesting.
Before knowing that this is the hottest color of 2011, I have already been adding little bits of pink here and there in different shades. The red I use in my decor too is more of a pink~ red than a candy apple red. Maybe I was already on to something before I knew I was "with" it. ;)
I personally love a little bold pink in a room to add contrast. I had fun putting together a collage of different shades in this very vibrant and pretty color...
So, what is your take on it?
Love it or leave it...
