Well, here it is Pantone’s Color of the Year – #18-2120 Honeysuckle.
Hmmm…I have to say I was a little disappointed that the hot new color is…pink. I am so NOT a ‘pink person’. Not that I have anything against pink, mind you. And in fact in the early 80’s, I was the proud owner of a pink and blue flamestitch patterned sofa. (That is hard for me to admit. But at the time, it was fashionable – I think.) Bottom line…I rarely use pink in my interior design color schemes.
So what does all this color forecasting mean? I do believe it means that the furnishings, textile and fashion industries will start to use this color (among others that are selected as the ‘colors of the year’) in their new product offerings. And as with other colors that have been selected in the past, some selections will get picked up by the design industry to incorporate into their interiors – and some will not.
I’m thinking, that for myself, ‘#18-2120 Honeysuckle’ will probably not show up very much (if at all) in the interiors that I design. Unless of course, my client is a ‘pink person’. In which case, I can ‘do pink’ all day long. Because it really is ALL ABOUT the client and what their style and taste demand.
