The Pantone Colour of 2010: Turquoise

With the stressful year that 2009 had given us, Pantone Inc. forcasts an appropriate colour that may reflect the ease of mind and tranquility that we all seek 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 colour that is universally flattering, and could be considered the 'new black': adding a punch of colour to browns, pinks, yellows and deep blues, "translating easily from fashion to interior design," Eiseman says.

Take a look at some of these Etsy finds that celebrate the multi-faceted turquoise spirit!
