Each year Pantone, the well-respected color authority worldwide, brings us a color that will permeate the trends for the year in both fashion and in home. For 2011 that color is Honeysuckle Pink.
“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®
A warm, vibrant shade of pink, honeysuckle is an uplifting, happy color and a wonderful way to boost your wardrobe or home for spring. Here are a few easy ways to know how to best wear this lovely hue:
First, Know your skintone – honeysuckle looks best on skin tones in a medium shade. If your skin is paler, opt for a lighter version; if you’re dark, go for a more bold hue. Honeysuckle, in varying shades, can flatter all skin tones, so find the one that works best on you.
Also, Try a new combo. Honeysuckle teamed with charcoal gray or chocolate to boost your cool weather look. Then pair it with khaki, white, or tope for summer spin. Find the combination that best flatters you and play it up to the hilt!
Honeysuckle pink is a shade that can be worn by women of all ages and look great.
For your interior, be bold or bashful but be sure you are incorporating a little honeysuckle into your decor this year. Here are some inspirations as you venture on your quest for the perfect pink accent piece.
