....."Honeysuckle!" It's a fabulous reddish-pink, a geranium pink, and unlike the Color of The Year for 2010, "Turquoise", which was hugely popular, people either really, really like, or really, really don't like this color.
I'm in the really, really like category as long as it's in small doses. Paired with chocolate brown, or honey yellow, or as an accent to champagne peach this would be lovely. It would also be stunning with olive, black, and hints of gold.
So far, I've used this color as an accent with two of my color report projects. First in a rivoli necklace of "Beeswax," a honey yellow, "Blue Curacao", a green tinged turquoise, and "Coral Rose", rich orange.
Another project is a retro beaded amulet bag in "Silver Peony", a lovely champagne peach, "Silver Cloud", a glowing gray, "Russet", orange based brown, "Coral Rose", and good ol' "Honeysuckle."
Sorry, no pics available, but I'll be starting my final Color Report project soon so I'll take pictures of that as it progresses.
