TURQUOISE: COLOR OF THE YEAR

Pantone Unveils Color of the Year for 2010: Turquoise
Pantone has proclaimed Turquoise color of the year for 2010. Becoming vastly popular in the interior design industry as well as in fashion and accessory design, turquoise evokes thoughts of tropical waters, fun and excitement.
“In many cultures, Turquoise occupies a very special position in the world of color,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “It is believed to be a protective talisman, a color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky. Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.”
In Interior Design, adding the color Turquoise to a space can easily create a soothing, spa-like environment.
Turquoise is a great accent color for decor and can be paired with neutrals like brown, cream and white to bolder colors such as orange and red.
Perfect for a powder room or bedroom, it can add warmth to an otherwise cool room. Turquoise is an ideal color when used as an accent hue: drapery or throw pillows in a living room, tiles in a bathroom or tabletop accessories and appliances in a kitchen. Used as a wall color it can update a space, adding excitement and an eccentric, modern touch.
