Color of the Year

In doing some research for design trends in 2009, I stumbled upon Pantone’s 2009 color of the year. PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa, a “warm, engaging yellow…no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow”. Interestingly enough, COLOURlovers has relatively few palettes tagged mimosa, and of those few are inspiring.

I’ll admit color and color theory aren’t my strong suit, I tend to rely on Color Schemer Studio and sites like COLOURlovers. I did put together this palatte based on mimosa.
