Color of the Year 2011- Honeysuckle (Pantone 18-2120)

Greetings to all!

Red happens to be the liveliest hue in the color spectrum. Honeysuckle is a derivative of red. It is here to stay in 2011 as the most fashionable color.

Designers and stylists all over the world consider Pantone Colors and Pantone Color Chart as a universal color system to decide on every major color criteria. Pantone Inc. recently declared Pantone 18-2120 Honeysuckle as its color of the year 2011.

Honeysuckle is a glamorous color – a pulsating reddish pink which is heartening and inspiring. It is a color with a lot of dynamism, vigor and character. It has the power to captivate our mood and elate our psyche. It is bold and audacious, confident and vital. It brings in a dynamic burst of oomph and liveliness to uplift our spirits in times of stress.

To me, Honeysuckle is a happy and festive color which is very stimulating and captivating.  Somewhere it makes me feel nostalgic too as I am reminded of gone by days of fun and frolic.

2011 will see Honeysuckle becoming a part of every color scheme. From fashion color schemes to home fashion color schemes, it will show up as a major in all paint color schemes, interior color schemes, exterior color schemes, etc.

Being a Textile Designer for Fashion and Home, I would particularly like to use it both as a bold color and also as an accent color to bring life to barren and drab ambiance. It will definitely dominate most of my product development decisions in the upcoming seasons.
