2011 Pantone’s Color of the Year, honeysuckle is a lively, reddish pink. Like many pink hues, it is named after a sweet and beautiful flower.
While honeysuckle is not nearly as delicate and feminine as rose pink, it is still associated with love, romance, affection, and, of course, femininity.
Unlike shy pink hues, honeysuckle is intense, bold, and alluring. Its vitality makes it a great standalone color choice. If, however, you are looking to add variety to a palette including honeysuckle, combine it with golden oranges, yellows, and seafoam green—all excellent choices.
