Turquoise is the 2010 Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone 15-5519 (Turquoise) was recently named the 2010 color of the year.

I personally love Turquoise and actually painted my whole living room Benjamine Moore Arctic Blue a few years ago and have never regretted my decision. Turquoise is an uplifting, yet calming color. It pairs nicely with neutral shades such as white, black, beige, and brown yet also looks stunning paired with red, yellow, orange, and lime green.

Turquoise became a popular color to use in childrens rooms and nurseries about two years ago and is all the rage now. I'm sure we will see some even more creative designs come out in 2010 now. Below are some wonderful images of childrens rooms using turquoise.
