Most of you already know Honeysuckle is the color of 2011. It's the color in between red and pink, and I love it because it has more energy than pink alone, but it's not dominant as red. More popular as HOT PINK, it can be paired with almost every color. Goes great with grey, white, green (as you can see below, because they're complementary so both colors pops out)...it can be also paired with turquoise (color of 2010) and I like it with navy blue . I love wearing hot pink,and have maybe too many things in that color.
what people from Pantone said about Honeysuckle in home interiors
Honeysuckle is upbeat and dynamic when used on large areas like the entry area of a house or an apartment. It is an appetite and conversation stimulant when used on the dining room walls. In the kitchen, it adds a fun touch on the table in placemats and other linens (patterned or solid), colored glassware, candles and small appliances. Honeysuckle is a great color to cover up shabby kitchen cabinets, or, if that’s too much of a color statement for you, try repainting knobs and drawer pulls. But be warned – once you try this arresting shade, it can become addictive.
This optimistic and cheerful 50sq apartment makes me think of spring...when flowers blossom. As you can see in the plan (far below), this apartment is a bit awkward but so well designed. I'm inspired by small spaces with great use of space. There are things I'm sure you wouldn't put together but it looks so good. We should always see everything in the context.
When you have small open space, a great way to make your kitchen blend in is to paint it same color as walls. I would normally suggest glass upper cabinets for small space like this, as they make reflection, but this way kitchen seems more like built-in. Notice art prints behind backsplash - great idea!
