If you feel like your home is boring, consider adding some pop with this year’s refreshing “it” color. Each year, the Pantone Color Institute selects a color that will be symbolic for the year. Turquoise blue was the color for 2010 and offered an escape from the economic downturn. This year, designers are all about honeysuckle. This bright reddish-pink color provides an optimistic response, especially after another challenging year. With spring right around the corner, why not start fresh by adding a little cheerfulness into your home; it’s a happy color.
Now, I wouldn’t recommend a full color scheme of honeysuckle for your home, but rather to use it as an upbeat accent color. Homeowners should consider accessories like area rugs, vases, pillows, sofa throws and dinnerware can really help electrify the home. To get the full effect of the color, make it stand out and not compete with other colors. Compliment with neutral walls and fabrics.
