Look at me – I’m here!

Honeysuckle – The colour of the year for 2011

You will no doubt be aware by now that the hot colour for 2011 is pink – not any old pink but bright, ‘look at me – I’m here’ honeysuckle pink!  It is, says Pantone, the colour that will instil in us “confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life”.

On its own honeysuckle is energising & invigorating but to really appreciate the beauty of this hue just look at the huge variety of other colours it works so well with.

For a wonderful combination try balancing the energy of honeysuckle with the calmness of teal as shown here with the Tamika fabric Collection from Harlequin.

Honeysuckle - colour of the year 2011

For a bright, sunny room take a look at Harlequin’s Anoushka

Collection featuring stripes & florals in pink, orange & lime green creating a fabulous clash of colour that is right on trend!

Add this colour to any number of soft muted colour pallets and you have a winning combination – from soft greys, duck egg & lilac through to earthy tones such as olive green, brown & mustard.

This M&S Bloom Stripe cushion demonstrates just how well this can be done.  Priced at £15 it is a great way to pull the various colours of a scheme together.
