Honeysuckle was named the color of the year for 2011 by Pantone. Having gone to art school, it seems that I have always known about Pantone, but for people who don't know what it is, here it is in a nutshell. Pantone was the first company to create a system for people in the graphic arts industry to accurately reproduce color in print media. Since then, it has expanded its color matching system concept to a variety of industries worldwide.
“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a 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.”
Eiseman continues, “The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages. In fact, this color, not the sweet fragrance of the flower blossoms for which it was named, is what attracts hummingbirds to nectar. Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer.”
