PANTONE® 2011 Color of the Year: Honeysuckle

"Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It's a color for every day--with nothing 'everyday' about it." - Pantone

Reminiscent of bright spring days, summer flowers and raspberry sherbet, Honeysuckle tugs on emotion, bringing about feelings of joy, nostalgia and optimism.

Honeysuckle exhibits a positive power--you can't wear it without feeling an extra spring in your step. When worn near the face, the color brings a flattering glow to most skin tones. The reddish pink hue has been a popular color across decades--always a gorgeous choice for clothing, accessories, jewelry, lipstick and nail polish. Men shouldn't shy away from the vigorous hue; the color is appealing in men's shirts, sweaters, ties and accessories.

Incorporate shades of Honeysuckle into your designs to show off PANTONE's gorgeous color choice. The versatile dark pink pops when paired with shades of grey, black, brown and blue. Honeysuckle is an ideal complementary color for hues of green and yellow and looks great alongside purples and reds.
