Turquoise was voted 2k10's "color of the year" by Pantone (the global authority of color) and provider of professional color standards for the design industry. "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."
Because of its versatility, Turquoise is a great accent color in furniture, wall paint, tile, cell phones and even nail polish for women.
"In fashion, Turquoise makes a statement that can look elegant and dressy in silks and gemstones, or casual and fun in cotton and athletic apparel. For men, chinos and ties, shirts and sportswear also look great in turquoise."
