So what’s the “it” color for 2010?

According to Pantone, it’s turquoise’s year to shine.

Look for this vibrant blue-green color to pop up in many fabrics, textiles and home interiors this year.

It’s a color that many people respond positively to, according to Pantone, which predicts the hot color each year by surveying designers. Many people associate the color with a pleasant and inviting form of escape, such as a tropical paradise, according to word-association studies.

“With both warm and cool undertones, turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum,” according to Pantone. “Turquoise adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, creates a classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens, and is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens.”

Do you agree? Do you think turquoise is a good color to work into home interiors?
