The Color Turquoise ~ Use It in 2010

Think tropical beaches, rich hues of the ocean and palm trees lining sand. Many vivid colors come to mind. This year Pantone has unveiled their color for 2010 and it’s Turquoise. This rich blue and green color goes perfect in Florida. It’s a perfect mix of the cool blue sky and gorgeous ocean. Florida is known for its tropical colors and this inviting hue is rich, tranquil and inviting. It would look good as a color for both men and women which both find appealing. Sometimes a color is too feminine and men shy away from using it. But not Turquoise. It fits both equally. Many top designers have seen this trend coming. Bridesmaid dresses, elegant attire and even top jewelry company Tiffany all use turquoise as a staple in their lines.

When you think of fashion it’s a great statement. For clothing, shoes, purses or jewelry it makes the item pop. One of the top fashion trends in recent years has been the reoccurrence of turquoise jewelry. Big chunky necklaces paired with a black top, make the turquoise set off the look. And don’t forget about paint. Turn a boring bathroom into a tropical paradise with turquoise paint, paired with some sea shells in a bowl, and you have an oasis in your home. Or take a dull bedroom, paint the walls a neutral tone, and then purchase a turquoise bedspread and watch your room come to life. Painting in a neutral tone and using colored accents makes it easy to change if you bore of a color. Another recent trend is to pair turquoise and brown. This combination brings together those natural colors that remind you of nature. You can use this pair for fashion, decorating or even outdoor paint.

So when looking to make a change to your home, wardrobe or just a new accessory don’t forget about this soothing rich color. You may be surprised at how much you enjoy using turquoise in everyday aspects of your life.

  1. I love the color, and that picture of the beach is absolutely stunning. I haven’t been to Florida in about ten years, I think it’s about time to get back and enjoy the wonderful beaches. You have inspired me to setup my next vacation. When is the best time to go in the summer months?

  2. What a refreshing change from the beige we’re always told to use in order to stage our home for sale. Making it appeal to everyone (no one?) Paint marketers should cotton onto this and advertise the color as ‘real estate beige.’ Thanks for taking us to a new color!
