Honeysuckle has been declared the ‘It’ Color for 2011 by the folks at Pantone…
…but I have four off-beat, edgy colors of my own that you’ll want to watch this year. In this post I’m sharing the first two:
Wasabi Green has been making a slow resurgence in the past few years — coming back from the ’60’s and ’70’s when it was called Avocado Green.
With our world becoming more environmentally conscious, the color green is being associated with organic and earth-friendly living. Many of us are going retro as we look back towards a simpler way of life. We’re finding terrific back-in-the-day finds on eBay, Etsy and in thrift stores, where Avocado Wasabi Green is bountiful.
Peacock Blue made a strong showing in late 2010 at New York Fashion Week. This gorgeous shade of blue varies in between vivid Turquoise and deep Teal. It definitely makes a bolder color statement as compared to the lighter tints of blue-green.
Peacock Blue also represents an exotic, global aspect of design that is becoming more mainstream as our world becomes ‘smaller.’
Stay tuned for my next post! Part 2 will feature my other two Color picks that you’ll want to watch in 2011!
