Pantone announced the 2011 color of the year…HONEYSUCKLE! Now admitedly I am not a lover of pink (although I don’t mind it in small doses), however I can see this color working…and not just to aid indigestion (pepto anyone?). It is such a vibrant and happy color, definitely something I will be in the mood for come springtime.
When it comes to using honeysuckle in home decor, I don’t think I could possibly get myself to use such a vibrant pink on my walls. Although, I am up for the challenge of making it look good and not too girly if anyone wants to push me to do so. I actually think if I had a giant closet with rows and rows of beautiful items that maybe, just maybe I would paint the walls honeysuckle. No guarantees though. When Josh reads this, he might pass out…he knows my feelings on pink.
So, while I am going to mourn the end of the 2010 color of the year, TURQUOISE (I have a love affair with that color), I am excited to challenge myself to inject some honeysuckle into our home and maybe even my wardrobe. As long as I say honeysuckle, I think I can stomach the idea.
Well, for those of you who love pink, today should be your happy day!
