Pantone has made its annual choice for color of the year, crowning turquoise the tint of 2010! "Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, 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 wellbeing," according to a company statement. The hue is also said to be universally flattering, making it translate easily into interiors.
Its undertones of both warm and cool colors give it the ability to pair with any color in the spectrum — and in your home! Try introducing a little turquoise into your home this coming year with one of these fabulous furnishings below. Or, be inspired by my slideshow on decorating with turquoise!
