Pantone’s color of 2010

The official Pantone color of 2010 is 15-5519 Turquoise.

Check out Pantone’s website for some color theory – calling it

“an inviting, luminous hue, as the color of the year for 2010. Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing.”
