Pantone Color of the Year + Valentine’s Day

Pantone has named Honeysuckle as their 2011 Color of the Year – and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner I’ve been inspired by the ‘not quite hot pink but warmer than coral’ color for the home, wardrobe and even a Valentine’s Day party.

Honeysuckle (I thought of yellow when I initially heard the color) makes a great impact in small doses. I love the idea of a pink rug in a grey or navy room – or perhaps as a small side table, patterned pillow or a knitted throw for the couch.

For the wardrobe, how about a thin honeysuckle belt over a darker/neutral cardigan? Or even in a pair of daring heels!

      How beautiful! I love the pillow and just picked up one in white from Z Gallerie – your prices are better, though! Thanks for sharing.
