PANTONE® 15-5519 Turquoise is the colour of the year for 2010. Turquoise has always been the colour representing escape and fantasy, while at the same time restoring our sense of well-being. It is almost a blessing in our lives - a colour of the mind, it affects us mentally - in a good way. It can relax our mind, free us of negative thought and move us into a positive state of being. Who hasn't stood on a beach staring at a summer ocean and felt nothing but happiness?
For many cultures, turquoise has always been a protective talisman, a colour of deep compassion and healing, and a colour of faith and truth.
A little bit green for invigoration and a little bit of blue to calm us down, I couldn't think of a more perfect colour to sail us into 2010.
PS: A fantastic book on colour is the very clever Shannon Fricke's - Sense of Style
