Pantone has declared that Honeysuckle is the color of 2011.
Well, Violet and I had a feeling it might be.
Sometimes I wonder if Pantone has a camera in my house.
Last year they declared it the "Year of Turquoise"!
Well, I already had lots of turquoise in my home.
I've had turquoise in my home like 25 years.
And it was soon followed by Honeysuckle or pink as I call it.
(although I think of a creamy yellow when I think of honeysuckle)
But if Pantone says its pink..then it's pink. There are pink honeysuckles, I know.
I thought I'd gather some of the photos I've shown of my home over the past year and
you'll see it's full up with honeysuckle already.
I was discouraged by many about reupholstering my sofa and chair in pink.
But I knew that was what I wanted.
Guess those women at the fabric store would not discourage me now.
And you know that dining room that I'm working on?
The one I haven't worked on this week because I'm Christmas decorating?
The ceiling in my dining room is.....drumroll please.....
It's the same shade as my sofa. I just thought I'd do it for fun and love it.
I really like ceilings painted a pretty color different from the walls.
So when I do the big dining room reveal....
you'll see my Honeysuckle ceiling which is actually Devoe Paints' Desert Rose.
So I'm way ahead of this trend.
I actually was thinking of repainting the ceiling...but now it's got to stay at least through 2011.
