Honeysuckle: The Color of 2011

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Pantone, the authority on annual colors, has selected Honeysuckle as the color of 2011.  What do you think?

Pantone’s website had this to say of the color:

“While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.”

Certainly, Honeysuckle would be an exciting and attractive spring color.  Homeowners could even get a jump on the trend by utilizing the color for interior winter painting projects.  Indeed, the color seems taylor-made to lift Wisconsin homeowners from the winter blues.

180 species of Honeysuckle exist, but the color Honeysuckle uniquely symbolizes the spring, which we could all use at this point, right?  And while it might be most ideal for homes, if you are a business owner looking to bring some life to your Southeastern Wisconsin commercial space, why not give Honeysuckle a shot?

Honeysuckle might also work well as a nursery color, as it it has a more robust vibe than the standard pink.  Something to consider if you are looking to design your nursery, but are looking for a color that is more of the moment.
