Pantone has named PMS 15-5519 Turquoise the color of 2010.
Apparently each year they pick a color and this year is Mermaid perfect! I look forward to seein all the great turquoise stuff to come out this year! According to Pantone "In many cultures, Turquoise 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 to many people, Turquoise represents an escape, taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting – even if it is only a fantasy."
Swedish company VIPP seems to be right on the ball with this special 2010 mermaid collection. I must have it!
