I am giddy with excitement today! Pantone, the global authority on color, announced that 2010’s color of the year is… drum roll please… TURQUOISE! Can we say YIPPEE!!!??? As I told you previously, my new fav color combo is turquoise & tangerine. I love, love, love the color turquoise. I can remember traveling to Santa Fe with my parents as a child & my must have souvenir was always a piece of turquoise jewelry. The color just makes me happy! Pantone describes the color as inviting & luminous. I must say that I undoubtedly agree.
Turquoise had a dominant prescence at the Fall 2009 International Home Furnishings Market. So, this announcement is really no surprise to me. In fact, I think I really would have been more shocked if they hadn’t chosen turquoise as the color of the year for 2010. Here’s a look at a compilation of some of my favorite uses of turquoise in both home interiors and fashion.
