According to Pantone, a leading color guide, the color of the year for 2011 is “Honeysuckle” . There, I said it…to be more specific for all you color palette aficionados, its #18-2120 Honeysuckle. Basically it’s a reddish pink, a color by nature that is uplifting, stimulating and fun.
The color translates very well in fashion, cosmetics and interiors. Not only is Honeysuckle the color of the year, but it will be a huge color influencer for spring.
So if you need a “pick me up” in your wardrobe or at your next event, go bright, fun and big with a little Honeysuckle.
