by Lisa Stewart 1 Jan 2010

PANTONE® announced 15-5519 Turquoise, an inviting, luminous hue, as the color of the year for 2010. Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering and translates easily to fashion and interiors. With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum. It adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and complements reds and pinks.

Perfect for a powder room or bedroom, Turquoise is an evocative, spa-like hue that adds an undertone of warmth and excitement to any cool space. Create a classic maritime look paring it with deep blue. In the kitchen, Turquoise adds a unique flare to tabletop and appliances.
