pantone selects turquoise as the colour of 2010

as we approach flipping our calendars to the next decade, the colour experts at pantone have announced their selection for the colour of 2010: turquoise. the specific shade the company selected is pantone® 15-5519 turquoise which they describe as an inviting and luminous hue. they go on to explain, ‘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.’ while there is no real way to check pantone’s predication accuracy, it is always interesting to see where they pick on the colour wheel.
