Pantone 2009 Mimosa

I am happy to see that Pantone Color Institute has chosen bright yellow, the Mimosa, as the colour of 2009. It’s very similar to the yellow I chose for paperbean design a couple of years ago.

“Mimosa, a warm engaging yellow, brings hope and optimism during a time of economic uncertainty and political change. Inspired by the Mimosa tree and the sparkle of the renowned cocktail, the 2009 color of the year represents the hopeful and radiant characteristics associated with the color yellow.”

I love this shade of yellow. It’s the shade I plan to paint the fireplace and two walls in the home office space to complement my yellow art wall.
