And the award goes to….

7 Feb

A while back, Pantone (a.k.a “the world-renowned authority on color”) announced the color of the year.

And the winner was HONEYSUCKLE!

Now I debated whether or not I wanted to write about this color because so many other bloggers were. Plus, despite what the HouseFullofPretty color template might indicate (whoa, am I psychic???), I’m not a real pink lover.  I blame it on the very pink (or as my parents like to correct me… mauve) dressers I had in my childhood bedroom.   I’m sorry guys, they were 100% girly girl pink and I was way too “cool” for that label! (Note the quotes there).

To be fair, they did compromise by painting the trim of my bedroom in black. Thanks M&D for always supporting my sense of style 🙂

However the more research and window shopping I do, the more I see this color…. and well… I’ll be the first to admit, it’s growing on me!

See for yourself!
