Color Me Honeysuckle

Jan 20, 2011

Ruthie, one of my fellow bloggers, whose blog I stalk daily (she’s fabulous), first alerted me to Panetone’s 2011 color of the year, Honeysuckle.

I for one am a girl who loves pink! I think this is the perfect shade too. It got me thinking about ways to incorporate Honeysuckle into my life.

I think this is a fabulous color for accents in your house. I know my husband would not be down with too much of this color permeating our house, but a few small touches would be perfect.

Of course all the celebrities and fashion designers were way ahead of us with this trend.

I would be very happy with this TIBI Shift Dress
Who doesn’t love a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers in their house?

My stomach is growling as I type this, these look scrumptious.

Don’t be alarmed, I am not talking about White Zinfandel. I am talking about Rose Wine. You see its the new trend these days. If you pay close attention you will notice all the Housewives of BH drinking this delicious cocktail on several occasions!

Quite possibly the easiest of all! OPI Party in my Cabana Nail Polish.

So, what do you think? Are you a Honeysuckle lover or hater? Do you think this was the right choice for color of the year?

    Speaking of Rose, I went to Pecha Kucha a few weeks ago in Charleston (a mix of presentations) and the sommelier from SNOB was presenting. He said that rose is the perfect Charleston wine. I really enjoy it!

    I am all for honeysuckle! My hubby wouldn't be too keen on all the pink, either. LOL! I know I could get away with some accent pieces, though!


  12. I NEED that nailpolish! Love your picks!

  13. LOVE pink with navy. And I'd love to accent pink in my home, but I think the hubs would kill me! One day, whenever we move, I hope to incorporate it into my closet!
