2010 color of the year


Talk about coincidences.

The other day I was talking about turquoise being the color for 2010. Now, Pantone names it 2010 color of the year. Now we know for sure.

Here are some interesting things said:

Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise inspires thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a comforting escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing.

Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and interiors. With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum. Turquoise adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, creates a classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens, and is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens.



Need to say more? I think not!

Rocio, how right were you about the color!!

I love turquoise, probably because I love blue and green. Combining the two colors into one, makes a lot sense. It is definitely an appealing color, and soothing.
