The Pantone Color Institute, the international authority on all things color, has just released the color of the year for 2011. Welcome honeysuckle, a reddish-pink hue that’s sure to energize your interiors.
Perfect for spring decorating, you will soon see home furnishings and accessories popping up in this 2011 color choice.
Bold and vibrant, honeysuckle is an upbeat color meant to stimulate your space.
Designers from Badgley Mischka told Pantone that they love the idea of pairing honeysuckle with “whispers of gray and ivory for an overall breezy feel.” These pink and ivory chairs will definitely do the trick!
You can add a fun touch of this shade with accessories like this John Robshaw Primrose Pillow. You might also find cute glassware and table linens to bring honeysuckle home.
For those who want to go bold, follow Miles Redd’s lead, and paint the walls in this grown-up shade of pink. More sophisticated than Barbie-doll pink, honeysuckle walls add depth and make a strong statement.
So what are the perfect colors to pair honeysuckle with? I’m a fan of gold for glamor and drama.
Designer Peter Som recommends adding black for a classic and graphic appeal, and I have to agree. I absolutely love the way honeysuckle and black come together in this dhurrie rug.
