Pantone’s Color of the Year: Honeysuckle Pink

Pantone “the global authority on color”, recently announced the new color for 2011. Following on 2009’s mimosa yellow and 2010’s turquoise blue, 2011’s color is pink, very pink. Specifically, honeysuckle pink.

According to the Pantone website:

“…Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.”

So prepare yourself for more pink this year. Pink weddings, pink rooms, even pink credit cards.

At Fairware we’re still waiting for our first request for pink SWAG. It’s sure to be super chic and all the rage. Looking forward to it!
