2011 Color of the Year

Much had been said about Pantone's revelation of the color of the year, which is Honeysuckle. Simply put, it is Pink. In a professional designer's world, it's technical Pantone number is 18-2120.

There is a designer in everyone of us, and this is applied with our everyday life: how we dress up ourselves, accessorizing the look, beautifying our homes and a lot of other ways and means.

From here onwards, 11eleven will have a say in what's hot, what's new and what's there to know. To make things simpler and easier to understand specially for people who wants to have a better look in life.

This is the 2011 Color of the Year - Honeysuckle Pantone, by the way is the world-renowned authority in color.
Honeysuckle is described as: "A color for All Seasons. Courageous. Vital. A brave new colors, for a brave new world.
It's a color for every day - with nothing "everyday" about it".

Oh well, such a nice description for the color Pink.. :)

Honeysuckles are arching shrubs or twining vines, with about 180 species. Many of the species have sweetly-scented, bell-shaped flowers that produce a sweet, edible nectar.

From Wikipedia, these are some Pink variations. Personally, I am not so much into pink or pinkish hues, shades or flavors. In whatever way it's called: Honeysuckle, Pink or Barbie (okay, I made up the last one).

Referring to my comment on the Honeysuckle's (or Pink's) variations, I would suggest that this will only be used as a tocuh, accent or accessory. Just like on this picture..

 And this is how a very pinkish room will look like.. To me, it's so "Barbie'ish".. What do you think?

This is more like it..!! Nicer to look at as am upholstery to armchairs used to accent a window or a corner.. Take note that the draperies are of a totally different color. But notice further that its color is captured on the throw pillows, completing a nice look..

Honeysuckle here is used to accentuate the wall, matching the style of the Dining Table and Chairs.

This pinkish room is tempered with other fabric colors and textures, made to complement each other.

Honeysuckle table setting, made to highlight the cream colored dish wares (plates).

 The room is high-ceilinged hence it can afford to have a floor-to-ceiling pink walls. Still it is balanced off with neutral colored Sofas, Armchairs, Center Table and accessories.

Just like on photo 6, the pink Armchairs are used with a complementary green color shade. And again, the throw pillows covers are colored with both colors to complete the look.

Unlike if used in Interior Design, honeysuckle is easier on the eyes if used in fashion. My personal opinion :)

A very "playful" room! Almost everything is of different color: Sofas, Armchairs, Accent Chairs, Coffee Tables and the carpeting. What brought it all together is the wall treatment, capturing all the colors of the furniture.
