The Color of 2011

Turquoise was the color of 2010, but it’s time to leave that behind. With all the colors I told you about for 2011 in my last article, Pantone has chosen which color will be THE color of 2011- Honeysuckle!

According to Pantone,

“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… Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage, and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.”

It’s the same idea with music, actually. In times of stress, record labels don’t release ballads or crooning love songs and choose instead the up tempo, catchy songs. That is of course why we have so many good dance songs lately. But, I digress. Think of Honeysickle as your favorite dance tune and splash it on! Wear it, paint it, embrace it. With this honor given to the beautiful color, I decided to give a little extra design inspiration.

Dream in Color

Color is the single most important design element in creating spaces that reflect mood and style. Color surrounds us and defines our world.

Since 1963, Pantone Color Institute has devised color palettes for forecasting the shades of the season, often offering fashion and interior designers a creative baseline for their new projects.

“Trend” colors forecasted by Pantone are great when used as accents and not for larger items, such as furniture and wallpaper patterns.

I wonder if any element of interior design is more personal than color? Nothing can more quickly reveal aspect of personality and character than the choice – or absence – of color. – Van Day Truex
