Color Trends Report Spring 2011 – Part 1: Honeysuckle

Pantone releases its Color trend fashion report for each season. The report is aimed at the Fashion Industry, but has transcended to all design industries. Its release is so influential that the colors selected in the report, quickly become the “it” colors. They can be seen in everything from handbags, furniture and clothing all the way to paint colors.

For those of you who know me it come as no surprise that know me it comes as no surprise that I love color. My obsession with paper married to my love of color is how I’m Inkpressed was born. So as you may have already deduced, I am one of those who awaits this report with baited breath. I was so excited when I saw the spring release of the Pantone report. So many of the colors in I have  been using in my designs. I was going to blog about all the colors at once, but because I am so excited about this report, I am going to showcase each color individually.

Each year Pantone releases its color of the year. It is the one color that bears the title of “The color that will transcend all seasons”. You can use it in the summer or the dead of the winter and the color will still be in style. Pretty big title to live up to. For 2011, Pantone has selected “Honeysuckle”, one of my favorite colors. It is a mix between hot pink and melon. It is fitting for adults and children. I have used it in so many of my products and I am excited to see that it is the color of the year. With that in mind, I will begin my color series with Honeysuckle.
