Announced by Pantone as the color for 2011 its going to be influencing what manufacturers make and what we buy.

Whether you love it or hate it – soon you’ll be seeing it everywhere.

I think these pillows on Etsy are darling!

These pillows would be a pop of color on my black leather club chairs – along with a throw it will add a fun attitude to the room.

What do you think of this shower curtain from Anthropology?

Love it?

Hate it?

I’ve seen some boring beige bathrooms that could use some aip and this might be just the ticket!

What a fun wake-up for a bathroom!

(I’ll check with my hubby to see a masculine view of this vibrant ruffled shower curtain — I doubt it’s his fav.)

I’m going to make my own lampshades and highlight honeysuckle in the design.

You can too in seconds – but that’s a whole different post!
(Sorry for the fuzzy pic-but it was so cute I had to include it!)

I paired the honeysuckle color white a chocolate brown here for this lamp.  I think it would be fantastic for a master bedroom – along with chocolate brown bedding and a pop of some ruffled pillows in honeysuckle?  Will look fantastic — can you visualize it?

My favorite is from Lamps Plus!  I’ve bought lighting from them online and been thrilled with the service and quality – who knew they had such cool pillows – going to order it next shipment!  This ruffled honeysuckle pillow is just too cute!

I know my re-design clients will be asking for new color ideas and honeysuckle may be the rosy hue they are looking for.  For home staging, limit it to color pops which will make the home look fresher and up to date.
