Pantone Unveils Color of the Year for 2010: Turquoise
“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.”
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.
