The Pantone Color Institute has announced the creation of it's first new color in three years: Minion Yellow. This is also the first creation ever to be inspired by a character. Based on the little guys from the Despicable Me and upcoming The Minions movies, Minion Yellow is bright, energetic and is guaranteed to make you 'Happy'.
"Just as the sun’s rays enliven us, PANTONE Minion Yellow is a color that heightens awareness and creates clarity, lighting the way to the intelligence, originality and the resourcefulness of an open mind – this is the color of hope, joy and optimism," said Leatrice
Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute.
In honor of the Minions getting a hue to call their own, here's a collection of some of my favorite things to bring a little joy to your home.
