The Color of 2011: Honeysuckle Pink

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.)

Remember when I postedGet your Pink OnSoothing… In the Pink and two teenage girls’ bedrooms that included pink number 1 and number 2? I was on to pink for a while…

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?

Happy pepto-ing.
