Retail Editor 3, Gary Evans, December 9, 2010

Carlstadt, NJ - Color authority Pantone has designated honeysuckle the color of the year.
Pantone's honeysuckle is a vivid reddish pink. In Pantone's "fashion + home" CMYK formulation, the guide is C4, M75, Y24 and K0.
"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," said 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."
