Pantone 2009 Color of the Year: Mimosa

"In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow." Perhaps not exactly Mimosa, we've plucked some of our favorite yellow rooms for you to revisit. Find the links below the jump.
