Honeysuckle is Hot

It's official: Honeysuckle is the Color of the Year.  A cross between pink and rose, this is a color that brings warmth into any room.  Honeysuckle has been named the 2011 Color of the Year by Pantone which is a company recognized as THE color experts and the developer of the Pantone Matching System color chart used by designers worldwide.  Articles in recent newspapers and trade journals have confirmed the selection of Honeysuckle.  To quote an article from the Akron Beacon Journal, "Honeysuckle is a reddish pink with a blue undertone.  It's stimulating, yet not as aggressive or passionate as red.  It's also somewhat complex." Think of using it in a breakfast room or a small powder room, a child's room or a multi-purpose space.  If you are concerned about wallpapering an entire wall with this color, consider using a border in Honeysuckle as a way to bring this color into your living space without having to redo your decor. It works as well with deep colors as it does with soft pastels and neutrals.

The picture below features a patterned wallpaper in a dining area.  Perfect in a place by the ocean or any body of water or in a country cottage set in a forest.

Browns Borders Sell Out.  The response to our blog reference to Cleveland Browns border has been terrific.  We had a limited supply of this hard-to-find border, but, don't despair--we are getting more. 

Honeysuckle Rose

Honeysuckle is the color of the year
So says Pantone, do you hear

With warm tones and subtle shade
'Tis a color that with time does not fade

But rather always looks spiffy and new
What a wonderful and sunny pleasing hue
