Pantone Color of the Year

Mimosa is one of the 3,000 colors available in Pantone’s line of superior-quality, eco-friendly paint. Mimosa is also the Pantone Color of the Year.

Mimosa is a versatile shade that coordinates with any other color, appeals to both sexes, and translates to both fashion and interiors.

What I find really cool about Pantone Color of the Year is Pantone has collaborated with clothing manufacturer Gap to produce a limited edition series of men’s and women’s t-shirts in varying Pantone shades. The temporary store is located in Gap’s 5th Avenue flagship store in Midtown Manhattan and features clothing for purchase representing a full palette of true Pantone colors as part of the retailer’s spring collection.

You can have your t-shirt and paint it too.


  1. But it's sooooo yellow ;) Ok in my garden but not in the house. I love those T-Shirts they are cool - have you seen the Pantone mugs you can get?

  3. I noticed that Michelle Obama's inauguration dress yesterday was similar to Mimosa. I can only imagine how I would look in that color! Afraid I couldn't pull it off like she did. It is cheerful to look at, though. :-)

  4. The message is great, but the color is a bit much. I think it would look much better on a small wall in a bright kitchen than on my freckly, 40 something skin.


No one is watching just say something! Everyone here is nice.
