Major News from the Color Authority Pantone

Today designers everywhere are sifting through millions of new design and color palette ideas. Wondering why their creative wheels turning? Because Pantone released their color of the year last week. The color authority chose PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle as the 2011 Color of the Year. The reddish-pink hue replaces the much loved and widely used 2010 Color of the Year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise.

Honeysuckle can be described as vibrant, courageous and confident. Directors at Pantone’s color institute believe the bold color is uplifting and encouraging.

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.

We are already envisioning rooms being lit with large doses or small pops of the lively color. What do you think about Honeysuckle, would you mind adding into the interior design of your home?
