Pantone Colour of the Year 2009: Mimosa

It figures. The global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa, a warm, engaging yellow, as the color of the year for 2009. In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow. "The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance," explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation." Best illustrated by the abundant flowers of the Mimosa tree and the sparkle of the brilliantly hued cocktail, the 2009 color of the year represents the hopeful and radiant characteristics associated with the color yellow. Mimosa is a versatile shade that coordinates with any other color, has appeal for men and women, and translates to both fashion and interiors. Look for women's accessories, home furnishings, active sportswear and men's ties and shirts in this vibrant hue. Mimosa is also one of the 3,000 colors available in Pantone’s line of superior-quality, eco-friendly paint. PANTONE Paints combine the accuracy of PANTONE Colors with the beauty of high-performance Dutch paints. Perfect for the kitchen or family room, painting a wall in Mimosa will add warmth and cheerfulness to any room, especially during the winter months. Mimosa also creates the illusion of being connected to the outside, making small rooms feel open and inviting. Ah...I guess I better start 'liking' yellow. (it's my least favorite - I rarely use it in my world or work - nothing like a colour announcement to poke you into new ideas.) What are your thoughts on mimosa?

Giggling here. My barn studio walls have been painted "Sunshine Yellow" for about 5 years...I'm not even a yellow person but I did it on a whim because I thought it would be good for me to try something different.
Painting over that yellow is on my list of things to do this month. Does that put me a step ahead of trend? A step behind? I usual I'm a step to the side....go figure.

Well, I can't say that I "like" yellow all that much either. Maybe it's just that I don't look good in yellow so I steer clear of it? But, there is probably something to the concept of needing the "bright and sunny" these days! Happy New Year!

I just saw those Hunter boots at Marshall's! Too bad i just got some other dog-walking boots.

Well, yellow clothing can make me look embalmed. Not a flattering colour on me. But I do like it on certain things. Especially that diamond and that steering wheel!

Yellow, in general is a happy color. Hopefully Mimosa will bring some cheer to the New Year.

Holly said...

Well crap... does gold count? I can do gold... but "Mimosa" ... Never. Does ANYONE look good in yellow? I mean, besides Big Bird?

Diana Draw said...

I look good in mimosa! Hee hee. However, I have med-tan skin; bright/saturated colors make me look alive, pastels make me look dead.

Beautiful post, BTW! Made me smile seeing all of that happy mimosa. There are some really great images here; together it all looks smashing. Esp. love the interior design shots of the white/gray/yellow combos.
