Last year's Pantone color of the year was turquoise because of its calming effect (much-needed after a tumultuous 2009). This year, they're forecasting a way more vibrant color: Honeysuckle! According to Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues."- courtesy of shine

Last year I posted my own version moodboard of honeysuckle. Now I'm trying to explain my idea of applying honeysuckle.

I know for some people honeysuckle can be too girly and intimidating. But here some tip you can apply if you interested in applying honeysuckle.

1. Use contrast and basic colors to neutralize the shocking, vibrant effect of honeysuckle
2. In terms you really don't have the courage to apply it, use honeysuckle in home accesories. Much safer than paint your wall with honeysuckle.
