Have you seen a lot of turquoise this past year? Well it was the color of 2010, so expect some pink in the months ahead as Pantone has chosen Honeysuckle Pink as the color of 2011. I love pink and am all about the color when used in the right application, but am also somewhat surprised at the choice. Their press release describes it 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”. (That press statement is mildly funny, please let me know if you face the “brave new world” with pink.)
Here’s a Janet Kain pillow that is currently on one of my sofas ands a partial glimpse of my tree while we are at it.
Lately though, I have been giving you all a rest on pink, guess it’s time to bring it back. What do you think?? Does it deserve “color of the year” and is it time to give pink its’ day in the sun?
