Mimosa Yellow - Colour Me Happy...

A small break from the 'Greens' today as an article has just been released on the newest IT colour for 2009, Mimosa Yellow - above, from Leatrice Eiseman of the Pantone Institute of Colour, headquartered in Seattle United States. Leatrice’s prediction for 2009 is a colour she calls Mimosa [which is very similar to Australia's wattle flower]. Being a yellow it is very hopeful and full of optimism. Best illustrated by the abundant flowers of the Mimosa tree much like 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.
