Pink Coming Down the Pike

You may already know that the Pantone Group has named Honeysuckle Pink the Color of the Year for 2011. Yes? But just in case you've been on vacation and missed the memo, here it is...




"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,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.” - From the Pantone website

Below are a few pink products that will add small pops of pink to your home:

I was surprised to see that the name for the pink is "Honeysuckle" because when I was growing up and sucking the "honey" out of the flowers, they were yellow. However, I just spoke with my friend from North Carolina who tells me the honeysuckle flowers in her home-state were a variegated pink. Who knew?
