In December 2009, Pantone unveiled the 2010 color of the year: turquoise. I emailed one of my co-workers, asking, “What is this, 1959?”
According to the press release, “Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing.”
As I thought about that, and looked at the following pictures, I realized that I could get on board with such a color. After a year that made me go ugh, a soothing, tropical escape sounds like just the ticket.
So frolic with me through the land of turquoise. And here’s to a 2010 that restores our sense of wellbeing.
P.S. You can’t do a post on turquoise without starting out with the House of Turquoise.
