I am feeling a little under the weather and I have a "to do" list a mile long. I thought I might sneakily recycle a Christmas post from my old blog, GoodtasteGoodtasting but instead I found a opinion of mine that I forgot all about.
It is about 2011 Pantone color of the year, Honeysuckle Pink.
Read this and be sure to see the last photo--funny.
Pantone announced their 2011 color of the year to be Honeysuckle or in lay terms... pink.
I think it is rather odd and perhaps a bit juvenile in its feel. Personally I adore pink dresses, shoes and accessories as a part of my summer attire but not my house.
Here is how Pantone describes its applications in interiors.
" Home InteriorsHoneysuckle is upbeat and dynamic when used on large areas like the entry area of a house or an apartment. It is an appetite and conversation stimulant when used on the dining room walls. In the kitchen, it adds a fun touch on the table in placemats and other linens (patterned or solid), colored glassware, candles and small appliances. Honeysuckle is a great color to cover up shabby kitchen cabinets, or, if that’s too much of a color statement for you, try repainting knobs and drawer pulls. But be warned – once you try this arresting shade, it can become addictive."
It just feels too unsophisticated to me. Maybe for outdoor furniture or something in a cabbage rose chintz.
I just think it is limited in its appeal because it is so feminine.
Ok, I am back in the present. Check out my first floor bathroom.
Its not the best photo, I know, but it illustrates my point--and with out a toilet!
I am in love with 2012's color. More about that in the future.
