Inspiration Board: Honeysuckle

For my first board after a very long time, I chose to focus on Pantone's Color of the Year for 2011: Honeysuckle.


It's like pink, but a darker tone, though less darker than fuchsia. Not as bright as magenta and less of the bluish tone. Pantone describes it as "courageous, confident, vital." And brides opting for this color are going for the more non-traditional route -- choosing a bold color that pretty much stands out from the rest.

Looking for photos with this color was pretty challenging, as it wasn't really pink nor fuchsia. And definitely not red. So I chose colors that were pretty close to honeysuckle and paired it with white/ ivory. Hope you like it:
