Wish List - Studio and Color

I'm always thinking about color, especially in gemstones, but the announcement of Pantone's 2011 Color of the Year triggered something that I rarely share:  my wish list.

My wish list is mostly loaded down with beads, tools and books, but I have a sub-list devoted to my dream studio.  In this place of mine, I  want a lot of color, but the practical me resigns the walls to either white or black so I don't get distracted from my beads.  And I've always envisioned a space for a huge chalk board.  When I was a kid, my mom had one in her office, and my younger brother and I made the most of it while we waited for her to finish one of her meetings.

Anyway, today's post from design*sponge brings me a bit closer to checking two items off my wish list - color and a chalkboard

Hudson Paint as a line of chalkboard paint !

Check out all of the chalkboard paint colors.

Pantone announces 2011 Color of the Year

The Pantone 2011 Color of the Year is Honeysuckle.
What do you think or feel about this choice?

Pantone Color of the Year 2011: Honeysuckle

My initial reaction wasn't super wow, but I do like it.
