Colour of the year 2011

Pantone Reveals its Colour of the Year for 2011: PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle, a vibrant, energizing honeysuckle tone that lifts spirits and imparts confidence to meet life's ongoing challenges.

For over a decade, Pantone's Colour of the Year has been a source of colour inspiration in multiple industries. That means you will see this dynamic reddish pink everywhere: in the home, in fashion, packaging, and cosmetics. Here are some ideas to get your adrenaline pumping.

On an accent wall, it engages the eye and, used strategically, looks sophisticated and stylish. But if a whole wall is too much of a colour statement for you, try adding splashes of colour with cushions, vases or ornaments.

Honeysuckle is best balanced with dark wood, charcoal or light to mid-grey. Floral tones add life and vibrancy to a room – proof that you don’t need to make a major investment to update and add impact to your decor.
