OK not so fast. It doesn't look like Pantone has published their Spring 2011 Forecast yet!
Back in the early fall of 2010, I posted the newest color trends forecasted by Pantone, and I had such fun searching out everyday items that showed off each of the beautiful colors.
So now I am patiently (NOT SO MUCH) awaiting the Spring Forecast.
Waiting is not one of my strong suits but wait I must.
BUT GUESS WHAT????
Pantone has announced their color of the year and it is
Who knew there was even a color of the year?
But isn't it gorgeous???
Pantone describes this special color this way....
Energizing Honeysuckle lifts spirits and imparts confidence to meet life's on going challenges.
AGAIN, WHO KNEW????
I guess colors do affect our moods, set the tone for special occasions and encourage us to eat, to relax and so on.......
But that is a pretty tall order on this color of Honeysuckle don't you think?
I remember honeysuckle bushes from when I was a kid growing up in West Virginia. The wonderful smelling flowers, the sweet taste if you pulled the blossom and touched it on your tongue (don't tell me this is just a WV thing), but I remember honeysuckle being a white color with a little yellow thrown in for good measure.
But I will take it in pink too.
You have got to stop by the Pantone page for the color of the year to see all the great things they say about this new color.
The description begins with ....
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.
Last years color of the year was Turqoise so I need to look at what Pantone said about that one. Since Turquoise and Pink are two of my FAVE colors (well really any shade with a little blue or a little pink in it turns me on), I would love a room where they were used together.
Until next time....
