The main color of our wedding – Turquoise – has been picked by Pantone to be the 2010 Color of the Year!
This color has always made me think of a tropical paradise, where we’ll be spending our honeymoon! And as Pantone states, “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.” What better color to choose for a wedding “theme” than a color that symbolizes faith and truth?
The colors that I’ve chosen to compliment Turquoise – tangerine, peach, and a shade of yellow - are going to make for a cheerful, vibrant and uplifting feeling on our special day!
So I ask my readers – what do you feelings and thoughts are provoked when you look at Turquoise? Is this a color that you would like to have around your home? Would you use it sparingly as an accent (a lamp, throw pillow or vase), or as a major element (wall color or painting)?
