COLOUR - Pantone Colour of the Year is...
Pantone today 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, no other colour expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow.
"The colour 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 Colour Institute®.
Best illustrated by the abundant flowers of the Mimosa tree and the sparkle of the brilliantly hued cocktail, the 2009 colour of the year represents the hopeful and radiant characteristics associated with the color yellow. Mimosa is a versatile shade that coordinates with any other colour, has appeal for men and women, and translates to both fashion and interiors.
Mimosa is also one of the 3,000 colours available in Pantone’s line of eco-friendly paint. 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.
