Drumroll Please

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

It seems odd to me that a company tells the design world what the color of the year is?

Luckily, for me I happen to love the color turquoise and I thought it would be appropriate to let others know in case you were buying prom dresses, or picking out bridesmaids colors.

Yeah! Turquoise take me away…

Pantone also states “Whether envisioned as a tranquil ocean surrounding a tropical island or a protective stone warding off evil spirits, Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and interiors. With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum. Turquoise adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, createsa classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens,and is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens.” See Pantones Official Press Release Here.
