Pantone Color of the Year: 2011

Pantone has announced the color of the year for 2011: 

It is described as a "dynamic reddish-pink"
that is encouraging and uplifting.
It is a captivating, stimulating color
that gets the adrenaline going.

It may be true. 
I remember how happy and energetic I felt when
I looked at the beautiful honeysuckle flowers
 my mother had around the house.

It is said to produce a healthy glow whenever and wherever it is applied.

I LOVE this color. 
Would I wear an entire outfit in this color? 
Probably not.
Paint a whole room? 
Not in a million years.

A handbag? Shoes? Jewelry? Scarf? Pillows? Throws? Sofa? 
Yes, definitely.

Come back tomorrow for more honeysuckle-related images.

Kiss, kiss.

  1. I love this colour too! Not red, not pale pink, some vibrant kind of pink. Something I just cannot ever wear but I do use in the house in little things as flowers and decoration, not a whole wall though.
    Looking out for your next post!

  2. Oh my comment got eaten up! Dearest, this is a divine color and it goes so well with your beautiful gray background!
