Today I got my design inspiration from Interior Connector-and fell in love with this color board showcasing this year’s hot color: Honeysuckle Pink.
Honeysuckle, the 2011 Pantone Color of the Year, is a fresh, dynamic shade of pink that is proven to induce hunger, promote conversation and incite passion amongst the most unsociable of beings.
With Mother’s Day on the horizon, think about this fabulous shade as bringing a feminine spirit of both comfort and joy to your decor. And a great color for that special gift you’re getting Mom too.
How to pair this rhubarb-y, strawberry-hued shade? It’s likely you already have some complimentary colors in your home. Warm shades of wood, natural tans, deep chocolates, taupe, olive green or even warm grays make a wonderful counterpoint to Honeysuckle.
Even though pink can seem, at times, overly confident, it can easily be a color for the everyday if it’s used with a little air of caution. It can be a perfect accent color on pillows, as upholstery on a pair of wing chairs in your dining or living room, or woven into a rug. Honeysuckle lends itself to so many styles, but works best with continental, traditional and modern décor.
When it’s used as wall paint, Honeysuckle is a great color to double or triple coat. Using multiple layers of paint can yield the most beautiful, rich result that almost looks textural. Don’t be afraid to use it to enliven an entry hall, adorn the walls of a dining room (here, paint the trim as well for an editorial look) or lighten up a breakfast area with this dynamic, energetic hue.
