We had three excellent candidates for March’s color of the month: aqua, emerald green and lemon yellow. To add to the fun, we asked you to help us pick the color. So…which did you choose?
1. Benjamin Moore, Jamaican Aqua; 2. Sears, Bold Emerald; 3. Sears, Chrome Yellow (all paint chips from My Perfect Color)
And the winner is…aqua by a landslide!
As Pink Pig said in the comments on our earlier post, “Aqua for sure! Zingy, energising, and I loved it as Pantone colour of the year last year, 2010—it’s only now coming into its own, I reckon.”
For a primer on using this totally now color, check out Bright Bazaar—not only is the site’s design done in aqua, many of Will’s posts sport it, or one of the members of its color family (turquoise, peacock and teal, to name a few).
