Pantone LLC has crowned Pantone 15-5519 Turquoise as the Color of the Year for 2010, and while this is probably old news to many of you, one of the most popular color combinations of the year was a surprise to me! I was reading a lovely post by Tobi Fairley, where she mentioned turquoise and orange were the hot colors of the season. I then realized that without being conscious of it, I had tons of turquoise and orange spaces saved in my inspiration files! Amazing how we can be influenced without even realizing, isn’t it? Pantone’s decision is probably the reason why I recently added turquoise accents to my own living room.
