Pantone 2010 Color of the Year: Turquoise

From runways to furniture showrooms to home interiors, the 2010 color the year, as selected by Pantone, will exert its pervasive influence on a variety of fabrics, objects and surfaces.
This year’s pick, Pantone 15-5519 Turquoise, is a bright, tropical hue that combines “the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green,” according to a Pantone-issued press release. “Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of well being.”
To inject turquoise into your abode, consider any of the following paint colors: Behr’s Jamaican Sea (510B-5), Sherwin-Williams Maxi Teal (SW 6769) or Benjamin Moore’s Un-Teal We Meet Again or Harbor Side Blue.
