Design Line: Honeysuckle Pink

26 Feb

I’ve always believed in the power of pink. Now, of course there’s some unflattering connotations (Pepto, carnations-instead-of-roses, girlhood frills), but there’s something infinitely charming about this classically pretty color, Honeysuckle. It calls to mind French boudoirs, lipstick stains, and Audrey Hepburn’s dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

In the spirit of spring revival, I’ve compiled a list of home decor and accessories as an homage to this year’s Color of the Year. With pinks, a pop is best, balanced with neutrality. Combinations tried and true: Pink with Gray, Brown, Taupe, Black.
