Glidden’s Color of the Year for 2011, Lime Twist, is a light, airy, citrus yellow that symbolizes a free spirit, sense of fun and positive energy. This clear, clean and translucent yellow encapsulates a mood of hope and optimism – a carefree shot of freedom and purity.
Yellow in color psychology terms is associated with warmth and sunshine. Light and airy yellows are recognized as being refreshing, cheery and uplifting. This shade can enhance, define and clarify space both inside and out. The slight green edge gives it newness over the egg yolk tones of yellow.
Lime Twist feels both organic and technological. It is surprisingly flexible and works with a huge array of coordinating shades to create palettes that are soothing, sparking and fresh. True, cool neutrals, deep berry violets, crisp blues and airy pastels create perfect combinations.
Fresh and welcoming, this beautiful color gives us hope and optimism for the future.
