2011 Color of the Year

Thanks to The Beauty In Everything for the inspiration for this post!  The Pantone Color Institute announced yesterday that Honeysuckle (Pantone 18-2120) as the 2011 Color of the Year.  I grew up in Mississippi where honeysuckle grows in abundance, and honeysuckles will always remind me of waiting for the blossoms to appear each spring and summer. From the Pantone site:

While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, 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.

I enjoyed virtually flipping through the Spring 2011 Fashion Report from the Pantone Color Insitute as well, and now of course I'm ready for Spring, although DC had its first snow flurries of the season today.  The grass is always greener!
