Pantone Color of the Year 2010

It’s no secret that there is more to color than meets the eye. Color (and the method in which it is used) profoundly affects human behavior and feeling. Each color has its own psychology. Often that psychology varies from culture to culture. I will touch on both of these subjects in another blog post.

On the cusp of starting a new year, I would like to share with you a fantastic article. The Pantone Color Institute (a global authority on color) has selected the color of the year for 2010. Turquoise!! — a color that complements neutrals, reds, deep blues, greens, and yellows. Turquoise is just the color to use in a time where we are all trying to budget and think long-term when it comes to purchasing new furniture and accessories. It can be used as a pop of color with neutrals. Turquoise can be used as an accent now and be switched out down the road if you need something fresh. It can be used confidently in larger quantities knowing it will work with many color palettes as styles and tastes change.
