Pantone Proclaims Turquoise As Color Of The Year!
As the new decade begins, so does a new set of expectations, resolutions, and lists of goals. For decorating, the new color trends reflect the optimism that a new year brings, especially the Pantone forecast for 2010. Bright vivid tones create a feeling of hope and healing, with the consideration that we should move on from the past. A new global influence is leading the way colors are combined, charging renewed palettes and patterns.
Pantone, the leading expert on color influence for the design world, has proclaimed Turquoise as 2010’s color of the year. “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 will be represented within the new color palettes in many shades and tones. While it is not a new color for the interior design community, it is showing up in new combinations that will no doubt spark creativity.
