|Pantone, the world renown color authority, has announced it’s 2011 Color of the Year. Honeysuckle Pink! If I sound excited, it’s because I am. I love a good pink, and I’m not going to apologize for it.|
Pantone’s Leatrice Eiseman says, â€œIn times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going â€“ perfect to ward off the blues.” I’ll buy that.
|This announcement is rather timely, given my Pink Christmas post from yesterday! I mean, it’s dead-on the color from the first photo of the wreath. And guess what color I painted a couple of my chairs two days ago?|
No, I didn’t have prior knowledge about “the next big color.” But I am The Decorologist, afterall. This color is Benjamin Moore’s Fashion Rose. It looks quite purply on the swatch, but reads dark pink once painted.
So tell me what YOU think about the 2011 Color of the Year.
