turquoise, meet honeysuckle...

do you know about pantone?
do you ever wonder how certain colors seem to be everywhere and influencing everything? fashion, home decor, even nail polish and makeup... 
did you feel like that about turquoise in 2010? (i still do! loooove turquoise)
well, if you know about pantone, it may not surprise you that in december of 2009, pantone officially named turquoise as the color of the year for 2010. and boy, were they right!
according to their website, pantone " has been the world’s color authority for almost 50 years, providing design professionals with products and services for the colorful exploration and expression of creativity. Always a source for color inspiration, Pantone also offers designer-inspired products and services for consumers. For over a decade, Pantone's Color of the Year declarations have influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries including fashion, home and industrial design "


now we know!

well, guess what? there's a new color in town.

i just love how these 2 colors co-exist so happily. don't you?
and while they do look so lovely together, be warned turquoise... hot stuff is movin in! honeysuckle is officially the color of 2011!

let's get to know miss honeysuckle a little better, shall we? she will be our best friend this year afterall!


and we can't forget her:

we call her fuchsia, but she and honeysuckle? twin sisters!


i think this color is perfect for 2011.
full of life.
full of hope.
full of confidence.
full of FUN.
full of courage.
isn't that how you feel 2011 should be?


welcome honeysuckle, i think i loooove you.

and in case you are curious, here is the spring 2011 pantone line-up:



ummm...yes, please!
while my spring colors aren't exactly the same, i am happy to see some familiar shades;)
which is your favorite?

Turquoise has always been my fave. After all, that's what I painted my diningroom! I do love the peapod and beeswax. I love your new colors!

Honeysuckle is such a pretty color! I also love the Silver Peony & Silver Cloud...but hey, I pretty much love color in general! :)

Beautiful necklace Jess! I must say that while I do love the colors together, I dont want to go painting my home in honeysuckle. It might be OK as pops of color in accessories or in my girls' room but other than that...I'll just incorporate it into my wardrobe:)
XO,
Sarah

Wow. I think coral rose, peapod and beeswax may force me to cheat on turquoise (my fav. color since way before 2010)...

Oh my gosh. ALL of those colors are screaming at me "Happy!!!" I die. I DIE! I love Honeysuckle, but Coral Rose and Peapod are calling my name. Lovely.

I really love a Honeysuckle accent...but my heart flutters for Silver Cloud...or really any form of gray.

I SO love this colour necklace!! But I love all your colours. I am desperate to buy one of your beautiful pieces but just can't decide on a colour...maybe I need one of each? ;)

I had no idea Pantone decided such things but I certainly think they've made good choices these last few years. Honeysuckle will be a wonderful addition to 2011.
