The colors of 2011

Honeysuckle is upbeat and dynamic when used on large areas like the entry area of a house or an apartment. 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 (patterned or solid), colored glassware, candles and small appliances. Honeysuckle is a great color to cover up shabby kitchen cabinets, or, if that’s too much of a color statement for you, try repainting knobs and drawer pulls. But be warned – once you try this arresting shade, it can become addictive. ut using complementary bronze greens like Willow PANTONE 16-0632 and/or Tapenade PANTONE 18-0840 adds a new sophistication to the combination that showcases the energy of Honeysuckle.The green tones can be really interesting in accessories for Honeysuckle tights and top. Another great and unique combination is Honeysuckle with a pinkish brown like Apricot Brandy PANTONE 17-1540.  Pink doesn’t always have to be super girly.  Pink is easily paired with white, black, green and even orange.  Pantone is not the one that puts out their color for the year, Benjamin Moore also came out with their own color Vintage Wine which is an anchoring, rich hue that combines the comfort of a brown with the luxury of a smoky violet.  Light spring greens and yellows are the perfect compliment for this color.
