Honeysuckle Named Color of the Year

Pantone LLC, the world-renowned authority on color and provider of professional color standards, has announced PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle is the color of the year for 2011.

While the color for 2010 was PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise and served as an escape for many, this year’s new chosen color is seen to be as encouraging and uplifting by many.  “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits.  Honeysuckle is captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.  “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”
