Pantone's Colors Of The Year are often incorporated into everything from home furnishings and interior designs to landscapes and runway fashions.

This year's color is Pantone 18-2120 honeysuckle.

Here's what Leatrice Eisman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute has to say about honeysuckle: “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. Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”
