Happy New Color!!

Image Source:

True to form, Pantone brings us its’ annual selection of color of the year. Pantone’s own colorologists have declared Honeysuckle as the chroma of choice. The rational for the color also known as Pantone 18-2120 is as follows:

While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.
“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,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”

The previous 5 years (2006-2010), Pantone selected Sand Dollar, Chili Pepper, Blue Iris, Mimosa & Turquoise, respectively. Head over to Pantone’s site for more, including their 2011 Color of the Year Palettes.

Happy or Crappy Day?

We felt these rings were appropriate given the current weather patterns in the Bay Area. Just when you think the sun is going to come out the clouds come rolling in.

Thanks Karen for the tip.

Traveling with Furniture. Literally

Hmm… This innovative concept design by designer Erik De Nijs functions as luggage, but can be converted into a comfy set of stylish furniture for those extended layovers.

De Nijs explains his thinking behind the project:

The ‘suited case’ is a project which is inspired on the idea of people waiting during their trip. People often go and rest sitting on their suitcases, that is the starting point of this design.
