Artsy Wednesday: Color Theory

Yesterday, Apartment Therapy had a post about the new color trends for 2009. Back in my advertising days, I remember getting very excited about the Pantone announcements and, well, I still think they're pretty cool.
According to the post, bright yellow is the color of the moment, and I can't say I'm terribly surprised. I love bright yellow and I've liked seeing it everywhere from Dwell to J. Crew to on my feet, especially when it's paired with dove gray.
Reading all about color got me thinking, too: Do color trends influence food trends? Are we about to see a lot more saffron-infused dishes on our plates? More sunny side up eggs? Bright cheeses?

I'll keep an eye out.
I hope, though, that any yellow I see on my plate is not paired with gray. Something about gray food just doesn't appeal. Oddly enough.

Everyone was tuning into yesterday's event to check out, among other things, Michelle's outfit, a nice golden-yellow. I also noticed, Bill Clinton was wearing a yellow scarf for the swearing in ceramony. It really stood out with all the reds and blues. Timely or trendy?

I think timely. Only because yellow is such a basic color. If it was a crazy fuschia, I'd say trendy, but I think even politicians can pull off yellow without looking like they're trying too hard...
