Look At This! The 2011 Pantone Color is Honeysuckle

PantoneHoneysuckle For 2010, the Pantone color of the year was turquoise, an appropriate escape color for a shitstorm of a year. For 2011, the trend expert/color pickers give us Honeysuckle, a reddish pink that is energizing and bold. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® says, "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. [The color] derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum." Yup. Pink. Get the house paint out. [Pantone]
