Color of the Year

See, I do actually do work now and then! I found this in my wanderings. Pantone Industries, bringers of all things color, have introduced their color for the year for 2008 (drum roll please)...

It's Blue Iris, No. 18-3943!

Apparently this color "brings together the dependable aspects of blue, underscored by a strong, soul-searching purple cast. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic.” The color was chosen by a select team because they "felt that it answered several needs, hopes, desires, that kind of thing,”.

Now I love color - I love most of them generally. Color can do so much, improve your mood, make you hungry, make you feel stressed out or amorous - it's a powerful tool. But I never really felt that color could answer needs, hopes or desires. Really if I known all that I'd have painted my entire house this color!

So, I'm off to look for Iris Blue anything - pillows, paint, rugs, PJ's what ever - cause I have a few needs and desires that need answering (and who among us doesn't need a tough of magic?)!
