Totally Turquoise in 2010?
Apparently it is a color that “pairs very nicely with any other color in the spectrum.” Hmm. We’ll have to see about that. They also claim that “It is believed to be a protective talisman, a color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky. Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.”
I’m not so convinced that a single color can wash our cares away in the midst of a recession and high unemployment rates, but I’m willing to be proven wrong.
But what is to become of last year’s honored color, Mimosa? Will it be washed down like a bad drink of the same name, becoming as unwelcome to fashion and decor as a hangover the morning after the big party? That poor color. Yesterday’s news. I happen to like it; in fact it is one of the tones in my living room decorating scheme. I guess I’ll just be a little behind the times. There’s no room in my home for turquoise at this point.
How soon do you think we’ll see Turquoise popping up in home decor stores everywhere?
