And the winner is.....Honeysuckle Pink!

I see lots of Pink, rose, magenta, blush
and now Honeysuckle too! 

I had my "aha moment" a few days ago.  Since then I have been researching the Internet, my magazines, books etc. to get ideas to create some concept/design boards.  Every artist and designer needs inspiration, honestly it is a very rare moment when the stars are aliened and beautiful art/design just flows with out planning. 

So in my research to create concept boards around Spring trends and Mom's day and I found


This powerful punch of color is everywhere!

If you know me well you would know I am not a pink girl. 
I rarely wear it, perhaps when I actually have lipstick on.  And the only place in my home that has PINK is in my daughters room.  

Pantone states “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

I have to say this Pink trend is growing on me.  
I am ready for some uplifting spirits.  If this color chases away the winter blues then bring on the blush!  

I could even wear it (in small does) or even add a pink pillow in the family room too. 

This adorable pink rose pillow is perfect for a girly room with silver and white...ooh.

What are your thoughts on the color for 2011?  Please share...I would love to hear! 

Have a rosy day!~ Darla
