Staging by Creative Concepts Home Staging & Contracting Salem OregonColor Trends - If it isn't anything you've investigated before, color forecasting is a fascinating process and has wide-spread influence.

Did you think you saw a lot of turquoise last year?

Turquoise was Pantone's color for 2010.  Soon we were seeing turquoise everywhere - clothing, accessories and home decor.

Calming, soothing and refreshing - in a troubled economic time it became a hit color and soon crept into most of our closets!

So what's the color for 2011?  Honeysuckle - imagine raspberry sherbet or a cross between coral and fuchsia and you'll have the color nailed. 2011 Color of the year

From the Pantone press release:

"While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life. "

Hmmm - now I'm not much of a pinky person and have never thought of a pink color to be "emboldening".  While we have designed childrens rooms around pink colors, our staging company has never used this color - even as accents.  But, I think this color will be creeping into our inventory very soon!

This spring we predict we'll be seeing  Honeysuckle pillows, bedspreads, glass accent pieces are going to be our inventory.

What do you think?  Tickled pink with the new color?

You may not be loving it now, but I'd bet by 2012 you have some of it in your home or clothes closet!

I think this can be a fun color used in moderation and with the right context!  LOVE the idea of an accent with chocolate or greys!!  The name "honeysuckle" always throws me....I'm expecting something yellow or gold!!

I like the Honeysuckle as an accent color.  It's real pretty, but I know I would want to change it after a time.  However, I really like the color of jacket you're wearing, Kathy Burke :)  Honeysuckle?

Oh, my-your blog really was about "pink".  I can't wait to see what you do with it this year.  The picture of the flower is beautiful.  Will I be seeing those on the bathroom counters of the homes you stage for me?  I agree with Catherine-we could use a little color.

I htink I like it -- and think it will be a great accent color.  And who knows - perhaps by the time they pick the 2012 color of the year - -we may have grown to love it.  i actullay can see it paired with a nice soft turquoise.  Makes me think Miami!

Margaret - It will be interesting to see this color creep up in pictures from this group.  Great information and it will be something I'll be looking out for.
