Yellow - Color of the Year

Back in December Pantone announced 2009's color of the year. PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa, a warm, engaging yellow. No other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow. I'm still feeling hopeful are you?

A couple of months ago I was inspired to play around with samples and incorporate mimosa into my designs. I imagine a fabulous LusterStone all-over design in an entryway or a feature wall in a home.

LusterStone sample - black with yellow base

LusterStone sample - yellow w/silver base

Here are some favorites found around the web. Which ones appeal to you? Are you brave enough to add yellow to your home?

I love the stripes on the ceiling! And I do love black & white with yellow as a contrast. :)

I love doing yellow at someone's house, but I just can't see it in mine... I look terrible in it. Your mimosa on silver sample is luscious, though.

I feel safest with my yellow accessories. It certainly is fun to use as a pop of color!

Black and yellow work so nicely together - the large mirror, or that great black distressed wall piece - but I'm more in your camp - using it in small bursts in my own home.

It's a nice yellow. A colour I don't use often enough.

Not a color I wear or usually employ but this winter was so dark it's all I worked with while longing for the sun. I was delighted when it was chosen as color of the year!
