Pantone announced the 2009 color of the year will be Mimosa, also known as Pantone 14-0848.

“The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Mimosa speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation.”

Pantone said the flowers of the mimosa tree, as well as “the sparkle of the brilliantly hued cocktail” are key to this color that “coordinates with any other color, has appeal for men and women, and translates to both fashion and interiors.”
