Pantone, the global authority on colour and provider of professional colour standards for the design industries, recently announced that Turquoise is the colour of the year for 2010. Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise is a colour that most people respond to positively. It's universally flattering and appealing to men and women alike.

With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with all colours in the spectrum. It adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, compliments reds and pinks, creates a classic look with deep blues and livens up all other greens. Turquoise is especially trend setting with yellow-greens.

For brides wanting to incorporate it in their wedding, Turquoise can either make a statement that is elegant and dressy or casual and fun. Because of its versatility, it's a great accent colour for decor as well as jewelry, purses, shoes, hair accessories and even nail polish for women and ties and shirts for men.


  1. In my studio, I have incorporated this colour (my brand colour) with a straw like gold and a stone gray...it's surprising how nice this palette looks against fresh white ;)

  2. Those who are very strict with following the color of the year standard rely on Pantone's guidelines. But for me, I more comfortable with my fave colors with the help from my girlfriend and styling magazines. I think honeysuckle is the color for this year. I already grabbed a pinkish tie just in case I need for a special occasion.
