Turquoise was just named Pantone's 2010 Color of the Year. I love turquoise. There are touches of it all over my house, and J and I spent last weekend painting an old console table with the color. We also painted an unfinished bookcase when we first moved in. They are both such great pops of color and having them in my house makes me happy. As for as turquoise jewelry? I have WAY too much, and always gravitate towards it. Love. Love. Love.
"Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise inspires thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a comforting escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing. In many cultures, Turquoise 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."
