Every year a new color is chosen for the design industry. Carl Stadt is the authority and sets the standards through Pantone paints and X Rite. http://www.pantone.com/. http://www.xrite.com/. For 2009 Pantone Mimosa yellow was his choice. OK so yellow is NOT my favorite color. Carl's reason behind it that this color is warm with nurturing qualities and that is what is needed in these difficult economic times. For my hard economic times the color yellow will not do a thing for me. OK OK, so I don't like yellow. My reason... well with my Italian complexion I can not ware yellow, washes me right out. I dislike yellow in my house especially my kitchen and well unless it is in a flower it is a difficult color to work with. I think there should be an alternative color of the year. Mine would be a light Aqua. Silky, watery, flowing, Aqua. Now to me that is soothing. So let me know if you Mimosa yellow is a color you like or would work with in your designs and if not what would your alternative color be.
