Pantone announced its color of the year 2010 to be Turquoise- I for one, am a huge fan! In many cultures the color is thought to be protective and healing, and the color of faith and truth. Inspired by water and sky and after several years of study, many people associate the color with an escape, whether it be from turmoil or as a getaway. Just think about the color - doesn't it just seem like a happier, soothing color? In celebration of the color of the year, I've put together a few of my favorite inspiring spaces from the archives. Whether you do it big or something a little more subtle, this color has some mayja presence.
