Meet honeysuckle.

“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” Pantone.com


Meet Honeysuckle, Pantone’s 2011 Color of the Year. Said to embody the uplifting feeling of the yet to come new year, it replaces 2010’s easy going turquoise. Being a girl and a fan of the pink family, I really love and will embrace this color in 2011.  Seems like I am not the only one, Don Cherry’s infamous “pinko” comments has spawned pins and t-shirts in an eerily similar hue.

    I actually kinda like it. Although won’t be wearing it any time soon. Honeysuckle still sounds Orange to me.
