0 Pantone Unveils the 2011 Color of the Year

PANTONE® 18-2120 Honeysuckle, color of the year
Everything will be coming up Honeysuckle 18-2120 next year. PANTONE, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, has picked their annual color of the year — Honeysuckle, a dynamic reddish pink. From apparel and paint to home decor and appliances, Honeysuckle will be everywhere in 2011.
“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. Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.

The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages. In fact, this color, not the sweet fragrance of the flower blossoms for which it was named, is what attracts hummingbirds to nectar. Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer.” (via Pantone)
The 2010 color of the year was PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise. In case you were wondering.
