    Reddish-Pink chosen as the Color for 2011

    If you thought Wikileeks was top news....

    According to the LA Times, Reddish-pink color, dubbed 'honeysuckle,' is picked as hot hue in fashion and homes for 2011.
    "Honeysuckle" is the color of 2011 chosen by Pantone Color Institute, the research arm of Pantone Inc., the company that largely sets color standards for the fashion and home industries.

    The reddish pink shade lights a fire to your senses and revs you up.

    It's much livelier than 2010's color of the year: turquoise.
    The good news for fashion divas:
    It can be worn for casual and formal occasions and it's not limited to spring and summer.

    Here's the good news:
    Garritan will consider offering a product in honeysuckle-colored packaging.
    There you have it. If you want to paint your house, redesign your wardrobe and your web site, the color name is:RGB #D65076, Pantone 18-2120 TPX Honeysuckle.

    Well, I favor the pink that was used on those first pink shirts that appeared in the early fifties.

    I'm in touch with Pantones all day through for my work and I'm happy for this choice, though Randy's suggestion is a good chance on its own.
    I suggested a similar tone at time of renewing our kitchen chairs without success (unless I wanted to face a divorce threat).
    I hope that next GOS incarnation will be eligible to flaunt such a plumage.

    If you like to play with colors I suggest you to spend some time with kuler.adobe.com

    You betcha! We chose that color for our keyswitches in anticipation of 2011.

    We're anticipating chartreuse in 2012 based on the Mayan prophecies.
