PANTONE Color of the Year: Honeysuckle

Hmmm. Well, it looks more like a dark pink to us. Being from the South, we are familiar with the twining vines from the family Caprifoliaceae. Sure, there are 180 species, but we Southerners are more familiar with the white/yellow variety and its intoxicating nectar. And yet, we would never second guess the colorists at PANTONE. We were thrilled with last year's pick: Turquoise 15-5519.

PANTONE explains: "Honeysuckle is upbeat and dynamic when used on large areas like the entry area of a house or an apartment. It is an appetite and conversation stimulant when used on the dining room walls. In the kitchen, it adds a fun touch on the table in placemats and other linens (patterned or solid), colored glassware, candles and small appliances. Honeysuckle is a great color to cover up shabby kitchen cabinets, or, if that's too much of a color statement for you, try repainting knobs and drawer pulls."

switchmodern has an item that comes in honeysuckle. This piggy bank is cast from a real pig that died of natural causes. Designed by Harry Allen and manufactured by AREAWARE.
