“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.
