Pantone Selects Color of the Year for 2009: PANTONE 14-0848 Mimosa

Mimosa Embodies Hopefulness and Reassurance in a Climate of Change

CARLSTADT, N.J., Dec. 3, 2008 - Pantone, an X-Rite company (NASDAQ: XRIT), and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa, a warm, engaging yellow, as the color of the year for 2009. In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow.

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

yellow on the floor.  why did i not think of this?? {found via bloesem}

feathers friends feathers

sculpture kate mccgwire
illustrator kat heyes' photstream,

ive been on the hunt for nice fabric to cover my new bargain £10  junk shop chairs. i found these at volksfaden. nice.

yes oh yessssss

I spent last wk end at my first festival of the season. hooray! its that time of year again! oh praise be...happy happy joy joy! wellies + cider +music+country air= very happy me.
wood festival was brilliant! its so tiny, i mean seriously about 500 people tiny... { half that number are the bands}  so there is a real sense of community. you pretty much know everyone by sight by the second day. it feels somewhere between a festival and a holiday camp { the hippy kind I went on as a kid}. the weekend is spent mostly making friends and singing. there is a lot of singing....singing along to the bands, around the campfire and in workshops. i sang my little heart out last weekend, it was food for the soul i tell you.

danny and the champions of the world were one of the highlights. my friend willy was so overwhelmed by this song she cried :-). 
stornoway stole the show for me. their lovely, melodic folk pop is just so...uplifting, i know it sounds cheesy but  i think several hundred wood revellers will agree.  they are playing again on tuesday in london. i might just have to go along for my fix.

patrick watson and the wooden arms... genius n'est pas?

something weird has happened to the layout of my blog....why has it done that and how do I fix it????

i like this a lot.

a photo booth with extras! marvelous!  
'The booth is presented in semi-public spaces as a typical photobooth holding no denotation of it's unique qualities. Users enter the booth, pose for 2 shots & exit as usual.

dark was the night is an aids benefit compilation. not only is it produced by members of the national (one of the best bands ever ever) but they have rounded up all the best artists out there to make this double album and the result is amazing....see for your self.
im particularly loving the new pornographers cover of snow white.  and feist with ben gibbard and the national and yeasayer and and and...just have a look.

I love functional design....

I love these.

hooray! a new thing that is actually really handy! how long before all headphones are zippers?
found via inspire me now where you'll find lots of other functional design if you like it too.

lovey dovey shmovey.....

do projects like the encouraging words project over at booooooooom make you squirm and want to mime sticking your fingers down your throat and make a gagging noise? ...well shame on you!.... you need to address that immediately and get over it.  what you need is some more exposure to that kind of thing....

.....dont say i never do anything for you :-)

let the right one in....

im not really a girl who's into horror as a rule but i just saw this  and it really rather good.
I know!  a swedish vampire film...i didn't think it would float my boat either but it did, i cannot tell a lie.

I've got a thing for snakes skin.

I dont know where it came from but i'm obsessed. Its an addiction I'm trying very hard to fight it but it seems to be winning at the moment.

I love this cushion too much.

its just a cushion....but its haunting me.  I keep seeing it everywhere.  I think we're meant to be together
