Pantone Names Color Of The Year

Pantone just announced the color of the year for 2010: a deep shade of turquoise. (This is almost exactly the color of my vintage kitchen counter tops, so I guess they’ll be back in style next year.)

many cultures, Turquoise occupies a very special position in the world
of color,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone
Color Institute. “It is believed to be a protective talisman, a color
of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth,
inspired by water and sky. Through years of color word-association
studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many –
taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even
if only a fantasy.”
