The Color of the Year Is...

Thursday, December 9, 2010
Each year, Pantone chooses a color of the year.   

Last year's Pantone color was turquoise
After a rocky 2009, the color experts chose this color
because of it's calming effects.

As we enter 2012 a more vibrant color was needed. 
Thus, HONEYSUCKLE has been dubbed the 2011 color of the year.

Pantone Describes HONEYSUCKLE as:

A Color for All Seasons
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.

According to Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, “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."

I am personally thrilled with this year's color choice! Although I usually envision honeysuckles being white or white with a honey yellow tone, the shade that Pantone has chosen is a vibrant pink! Nothing screams happiness and positivity like the color pink.  This color's eye-catching hue is striking! It's not only a color I already wear, it's a color I can't wait to add more of to my wardrobe.  We are already starting to see this color hit mainstream...

So as we enter 2011, I say...BRING ON the sweetness, confidence, amazingness that is HONEYSUCKLE!
