Original Post

One of my favorite home design blogs posted this today, and I thought I'd pass it on if it helps anyone with colors. Here's an excerpt:

Among other trends, IMM Cologne reports “the dominant color is a cold grey, accompanied by ash grey and black and brightened up with vibrant dashes of citrus yellow and mandarin orange. A light taupe mediates between grey and white and adds a little softness to the colour scale.” Also, back in December, Pantone had proclaimed Honeysuckle 2011 Color of the Year and the defining hue for Spring.

Here's a link to the full blog entry:

Thanks for posting this. I don't particularly care for the honeysuckle they chose. It's so pink. I thought honeysuckle was more of a peachy pink. Still not one of my favorites.

I love that they chose pink honeysuckle! I have a pink honeysuckle vine in my garden and it's divine. :)

Great to see trends that work with my paintings! ;)
In fact, every year's trending color seems to work - how about that?
