Color of the Year: 2010

Today is dedicated to the "Color of the Year" for 2010: Turquoise!
Every year, Pantone (known as the world's "color authority") announces the color of the year - it's affect on mood, use in fashion and interior design and where you can expect to see this color within the next twelve months.
After two weeks of "breathing space" (meaning that the Christmas decorations are all put away and I have yet to introduce any color or pattern in my base decor of neutrals), I am ready to enhance the house with color, texture and flowers again.
In deference to Pantone, I will try to incorporate some turquoise in the house. Dishtowels? Pillows?
I wish I had made a poster of this photo from last Summer. This image of "Sand Patterns" would look gorgeous over my white couch!

I do love turquoise as a colour, as long as I don't have to wear it!!

How fitting, as I'm wearing it right now! I made a decision to wear more turquoise, as long as it's just the right shade for my skin tone. I find that I really do like adding another color to my wardrobe!

See, Nancy, you are cutting edge!
I am still working on the right turquiose "touch" for the house. Plus there is always jewelry...
