2011 Color of the Year: Honeysuckle Pink!

February 16th, 2011

Now that we’re 2 months into the new year, we want to know…

How are you liking Pantone’s 2011 color choice of the year? It’s honeysuckle pink!

Would it be too cheesy to say, “We’re tickled pink about it!” 😉

Seriously. We are in LOVE with the color! What a great time to add some splash to the mundane…and especially with spring just around the corner! It’s a color that just makes you want to smile.

Leatrice Eiseman, color specialist and executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said, “It’s not quite as hot as a hot pink, it has slight coral-ly undertones, which gives it some warmth. It’s what a lot of people find appealing.”

Here are a few photos for inspiration to see how this color might fit into your planning!


Is it too much? How about adding some little changes to the room with a big pop!

Oh, and can you imagine the possibilities with weddings and other special occasions? Wow!

Yes, yes. Love, love.

What do YOU think? Are you incorporating honeysuckle pink into your wardrobe? Home decor? Accessories? Events? We’d love to hear about your own experiences as well as where you’ve been seeing this color more and more recently!

    I love pink in just about any shade. Hopefully since it is the color of the year, we will be lucky and find our baby girl this year! :)
