Color of the Year: PANTONE 15-5519

Happy New Year! Did you know that PANTONE chooses one color a year as THE color of the year? Twenty-ten's color is the PANTONE 15-5519 (aka Turquoise), which they call "an inviting, luminous hue."

I don't know about their claim that "Turquoise Transports Us to an Exciting, Tropical Paradise While Offering a Sense of Protection and Healing in Stressful Times," but I do know that I've been into bright jewel tones lately, and a strong turquoise or teal could really scratch that itch.

I scoured some lovely vintage finds on etsy, and have a little color inspiration for the year. So much pretty turquoise and other shades of blue and green!
