Pantone Names Honeysuckle as 2011 Color of the Year
December 9, 2010,
CARLSTADT, N.J.-The vibrant, uplifting color honeysuckle has been named as Pantone's color of the year for 2011.
Numbered as Pantone 18-2120, Honeysuckle is a contrast to 2010's calming color of the year Turquoise.
The color is ideal for apparel, home and more, and is already available as one of the nearly 200 Pantone Wedding Colors from apparel manufacturer Dessy, as well as a Pantone paint color and a Pantone Visa Platinum Rewards Card.
"The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages," Eiseman said. "In fact, this color, not the sweet fragrance of the flower blossoms for which it was named, is what attracts hummingbirds to nectar. Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer."
