Yes, it is official. Pantone has finally announced it's 2011 Color of the Year and it is HONEYSUCKLE or technically, Pantone 18-2120. Why Honeysuckle? Because it is "a color for all seasons".
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it. Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.
It is believed that energizing honeysuckle lifts spirits and imparts confidence to meet life's ongoing challenges.
If you are up and ready to face the challenges of the Year 2011, a little boost of confidence by wearing on a flash of honeysuckle here and there will probably do wonders. I remember having almost this color for my wedding motif last 2007 and it was really kind of symbolic to us who are just having a fresh start at married life.
