Color of the year by Pantone

Pantone's color of the year for 2011 is Honeysuckle. I must say it is quite a pretty color with not a whole lot of girlishness going on, which is good.
Pantone phrases it as "A Color for All Seasons
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it."  Did you know the mother color of Honeysuckle is red?

This color will work for men, women and interior. Pantone makes a point of course to make sure the color can work with many industries; apparel, auto, interiors, paints.

"Honeysuckle is guaranteed to produce a healthy glow when worn by both men and women. It’s a striking, eye-catching hue that works well for day and night in women’s apparel, accessories and cosmetics, and in men’s ties, shirts and sportswear. Add a lively flair to interior spaces with Honeysuckle patterned pillows, bedspreads, small appliances and tabletop accessories. Looking for an inexpensive way to perk up your home? Paint a wall in Honeysuckle for a dynamic burst of energy in the family room, kitchen or hallway." To read more click here.
