Pretty in Pink?
So I have to admit that when Pantone announced the 2011 color of the year, I was pretty confident that it would catch on. I mean their track record is darn good. Their color for 2010 was a turquoise shade, and that just exploded! But this time, I was sooo wrong. The 2011 "Honeysuckle Pink" did not catch on, it did not spread, in fact, it sort of died. Instead the industry apparently all agreed to feature a dark indigo, which is gorgeous but sort of embarrassing for the the self proclaimed "world-renowned authority on color". But, perhaps a comeback is approaching. I am here to tell you that honeysuckle pink is starting to make an appearance. It is silently, sneakily slipping in to our collective palate. When browsing about, I realized I was continually attracted to a small crop of warm pinks. They were just so fresh and so cosy next to the cool blues and grays that are so popular now. So perhaps Honeysuckle was just before its time. Or maybe it will just fade in and fade out quietly to make way for a redeeming color of 2012!
What do you think? Have you noticed and warm pinks out and about? Do you even like it?
