Experts The color honeysuckle is the new trend in home decorating in 2011

on Friday,April 01,2011 18:04


Honeysuckle is the color for interior designers to utilize this spring, experts suggest. The reddish-pink vibrant color is popping up in living rooms, offices and bedrooms across the country. It has taken the place of the color turquoise, which dominated home decor last year, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Leatrice Eiseman, director of the Pantone Color Institute, suggested to the newspaper that the color can "add a lively flair to interior spaces with honeysuckle-patterned pillows, bedspreads, small appliances and tabletop accessories."

The designer added that she believes the color can complement different shades of blues, greens and oranges, and can enhance any room. Eiseman explained that it is also possible to incorporate it using honeysuckle-accented wallpaper or by painting an accent wall that color.

Individuals who are interested in pursuing a career as an interior designer may want to incorporate the latest trends into their style. That outlook coupled with strong problem-solving skills and ability to work independently may result in a job in this field, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
