A few months ago, I shared with you designer Timothy Corrigan's prediction that turquoise would be the hot color for home decor in 2010. He saw it popping up at design shows from Paris to Las Vegas and forecasted that soon everyone one would be accessorizing with this fun color. And now it looks like Corrigan was right on the money. This week, Pantone announced its top color for 2010 is...turquoise. Pantone chose turquoise because it reminds us of calm Caribbean waters and gives a sense of healing, explains Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. It also extremely versatile and pairs easily with both dark and light colors. If you're looking to be the first of your friends to incorporate this hot color into your home, here are a few products you might want to check out.
