I’ve learned something new this week. Pantone has a color of the year. Honeysuckle has been chosen for this high honor. This pinkish red color promises to help us face our everyday troubles. Color has so many talents, don’t you think?

Here are a few Etsy items that reflect this year’s chosen color.
- Flowers are a great place for colors
- Pressed flower pendant
- Include your little one in the color fun with onesies stickers
- Find your favorite tunes on this cheery vintage radio
- Owl friend
When I think of Pantone, I immediately envision the 2 inch thick swatch book of colors – similar to paint swatches at the hardware store. It’s a color matching system that helps clarify which blue or green or yellow you actually mean. Pantone is spreading beyond paint colors and printing ink. For example. Are you planning a wedding? Select a Pantone ensemble for perfect coordination. You can also request style for your Visa Card.
Pantone’s Color of the Year started back in 2000 with Cerulean (a shade of light blue) receiving the high honors. What color(s) are in your favorite palettes? What unique ways do you surround yourself with your favorite color(s)?
