Garden Design Color Trend: Honeysuckle (Pantone 2011)

12/20/2010

Last week, Pantone named their 2011 color of the year.  Honeysuckle, they say, “lifts spirits and imparts confidence to meet life’s ongoing challenges”.  Personally, I think that might be a lot to ask of a color, but I do think that it will be fun to see this cheery pinky, salmon-y, terracotta color grace interiors, fashion, and of course, garden design.

Do you want in the trend? Here are few honeysuckle inspirations that you can incorporate into your landscape design….maybe it will help you to meet life’s challenges….or at least feel ‘on trend’ if you care about that sort of thing…

Across the Top: Rose romantic party string lights from ooga lights. Pink peonies (any of a variety).  Middle: Garden Boots — because it seems everyone is in the on the garden boot (wellie) game…whatever style or pattern you like — but in ‘honeysuckle’ I would go for these from Tretorn or the black and pink striped from Thomas Pink (both found on This Next) .  Bottom Right:  Those are cushions…they are concrete stepping stones made to look like cushions….check out the full collection (in a variety of other colors and styles as well) at tuffits. And finally (bottom left) – a different pink garden parasol, this time from Party in the garden.
