Spring Mantle Pantone Honeysuckle

March 28, 2014
We have been redoing our home for the past four years and it has been a 

true labor of love.

My husband enjoys replacing baseboards, molding and most anything that 

involves a saw and wood.

My passion is decorating and for this Spring Season I just sort of went with

what inspired me and that is Pantone 2011 color of the year Honeysuckle.

I have really been doing my research on these Pantone colors and even 

though this was thee color of the year three years ago, it is still an incredible 

color to add to your home.

Since our French Gray Walls and white molding lend themselves to 

incorporating this magnificent, confident and vital color into our family room,

I went with it and now I am enjoying it.

In the beginning I was hesitant because Honeysuckle seems 

quite feminine to me and in my mind I am saying to myself pink....

Hum... for a family room?

But as I slowly began adding and layering this calming and hopeful color into

our home I saw the power and affirmation it brought to our mantle and

bookshelves and well...

I was pretty much smitten and so was my husband, which surprised me.

Who knew a fellow would like Pantone Honeysuckle, so well.

I love Honeysuckle as an accent to our home.

Adding a touch of Honeysuckle has brightened and revitalized our family room.

I suppose a touch of pink is good for everyone's soul...

  5. Pink (honeysuckle does sound more exotic than pink) is said to be a very soothing, and relaxing colour. I have no honeysuckle in my house, but I do love the light and calm effect your displays of honeysuckle give on your mantle and bookshelves. The dried roses and bright flowers really add some liveliness. Just beautiful!
