Say hello to the official color of 2011. Did we miss the memo that Hello Kitty is now picking the color of the year? We joke (sort of). Every year Pantone, "the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries," (their words, not ours), announces a color of the year. For 2011, that color is honeysuckle.
The color doesn't exactly suit us -- we're more of a winter, thank you -- but we suspect a lot of teenage girls will be happy.
“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,” said 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.”
What do you think, 'Philers? Does Honeysuckle get your adrenaline going, or turn your stomach?
