Color of the Year for 2011: Honeysuckle

Honeysuckle from Pantone's Website

Pantone, experts on color trends and color matching, have declared Honeysuckle the Color of the Year for 2011.

They describe the color as:

A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

They called last year’s color, turquoise, an ‘escape.’  2011 is more optimistic.   It’s time to meet challenges.  It’s time to stop hiding.  I like the attitude.
Update:  I also like how it fits with the color of our blog!
