As many of you already know, earlier this month Pantone announced their Color of the Year. While I always pay attention to design trends, I don’t always follow them. However, this year’s Color of the year, PANTONE® 18-2120 Honeysuckle spoke to me in ways that reached beyond the color spectrum.
As stated in Pantone’s press release, “Energizing Honeysuckle Lifts Spirits and Imparts Confidence to Meet Life's Ongoing Challenges” and I couldn’t agree more. It personifies the essence of life itself. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute®. stated that “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”
So let’s embrace the power of this color and harness it’s restorative essence so that it not only “ is guaranteed to produce a healthy glow when worn by both men and women”, but actually improves the physical quality of their lives.
Let’s use it in home design and apparel, cosmetics and accessories, but more importantly, let’s use it to save lives!
Let’s all Think Pink today and everyday as we support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Here is the perfect way to start:
While our custom Mid Century Pretty in Pink 4 Life bench may not be Honeysuckle, the restorative power of its Pink hue cannot be denied and its sale will mean so much to Komen CT who will receive ALL the proceeds.
