Did you think you saw a lot of turquoise last year?
Turquoise was Pantone's color for 2010. Soon we were seeing turquoise everywhere - clothing, accessories and home decor.
Calming, soothing and refreshing - in a troubled economic time it became a hit color and soon crept into most of our closets!
From the Pantone press release:
"While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life. "
Hmmm - now I'm not much of a pinky person and have never thought of a pink color to be "emboldening". While we have designed childrens rooms around pink colors, our staging company has never used this color - even as accents. But, I think this color will be creeping into our inventory very soon!
This spring we predict we'll be seeing Honeysuckle pillows, bedspreads, glass accent pieces are going to be our inventory.
What do you think? Tickled pink with the new color?
You may not be loving it now, but I'd bet by 2012 you have some of it in your home or clothes closet!
