Perhaps it has something to do with continuously changing fashions with the same dark and neutral palettes at work that has me overly happy for 2011’s color of the year. The Pantone Color Institute has christened Honeysuckle as the new ‘it’ color for the coming year – a color that blends red and pink. I feel like it’s almost an adult pink – not neon or barbie hot pink, and yet not a soft, girlie pink (something I’m not a avid fan of, except on my nails. And blog background). I’m looking forward to seeing this color pop up in clothes, interior designs, home products, and more. Visa has even come out with an official Honeysuckle Platinum Rewards card, and I could use a bit of color in my wallet next to my silver, red and navy colored cards!
