For Year Colour of 2011 Pantone has chosen a reddish pink called Honeysuckle (18-2120). They say it’s a brave new colour for a brave new world. The 2010 colour of the year – turquoise – served as an escape for many, whereas the 2011 colour ’emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor’. Honeysuckle is the colour that attracts hummingbirds to nectar. In home decor, the suggestion for 2011 is to add a lively flair with Honeysuckle patterned pillows, bedspreads, small appliances and tabletop accessories. Or to paint a wall in this reddish pink for a dynamic burst of energy. It is an appetite and conversation stimulant when used on the dining room walls. In the kitchen, it adds a fun touch on the table in placemats and other linens, colored glassware, candles and small appliances.
