Vibrant and rich, Mimosa is a shade of yellow that never brings a dull moment. The Pantone Color Institute® recently selected this warm hue as the "Color of the Year" for 2009. Drawn from the colors of the champagne cocktail and lush flowers of the Mimosa tree, infusing the home with Mimosa shades brings a sense of comfort and optimism to living spaces.

"The cheerfulness and sparkle of the Mimosa shade of yellow can liven up any room," said La-Z-Boy product manager Penny Eudy. "With the winter season upon us, now is the perfect time to incorporate this positive, versatile color in the home -- from walls and appliances to furniture and accessories."

Eudy recommends the following ways to seamlessly add bold yellow hues to the home:

  •     Bring the outside in. Shades of yellow create the illusion of larger spaces and will keep visitors feeling warm inside all year round. Brighten up spaces and bring the cheery glow of sunshine indoors with a soft yellow paint for breezy hallways or a vivid gold to expand small bathrooms. Instantly update windows with Graber's Traditions® Wood Blinds in Natural Bamboo and let the sun shine in!
  •     Incorporate a new shade of neutral. Out with the old and in with the new -- neutral! Yellow furniture makes an uplifting complement to any décor and a radiant replacement for the tired beige and tan found in many homes. Replace a drab sofa with the La-Z-Boy "Marcus" in Miami Cornsilk leather for an eye-catching addition to living spaces that will work with existing pieces.
  •     Make a splash with eye-catching appliances. Adding in the dazzle of Mimosa hues doesn't have to mean a complete home makeover. Incorporating splashes of yellow with household items and décor is a simple way to add flair to any room. The Capture+ vacuum from Eureka is a simple solution to dust and dirt that gathers in the house, and in stylish Summer Glow it adds dazzle to even the dreariest cleaning days.
