Pantone's Spring 2011 Color Forecast

Now that March has begun (can you feel yourself thawing?), we’re officially getting excited for all things spring – budding blooms, swinging sundresses, and, perhaps best of all,  fresh punches of color in our living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. What shade is on our radar this spring? Honeysuckle – a warm, playful pink that Pantone, the keeper of all things color, chose as the 2011 Color of the Year. The spring color forecast was laid out by committee last year (that’s right – they get together just to choose the colors that we’ll covet!), and we’re already seeing honeysuckle appear in some of our favorite spring decor choices.

This pretty pattern is sure to get you in the spirit for spring, with pops of honeysuckle among fresh green details. Bed Bath & Beyond

Coral-toned shells, another one of Pantone’s picks for spring, pleasingly blend with the warm pink in this  eye-catching chandelier. PBteen
