Pantone 2010 Color of the Year: Turquoise Garden Inspiration

12/15/2009

I look forward to the annual announcement of the Pantone color of the year.  I now have a 2 year running track record of  having projects in the works (before the color is announced) that are using the color of the year.  I think I might have a little bit of a tend spotting record going here.  Last year was Mimosa — and I had just finished a redo of my bathroom in that color (BTW – that bathroom is going to be in BHG this Feb – I will give you a heads up when it is on the stands so you can check it out if you want to).  The year before was Iris blue and well — I have to admit..I missed that one…

Anyway, this year (2010)  is Turquoise.  I put together this garden inspired inspiration board to get you thinking about all the pretty ways to use it in the landscape.

“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.” – Pantone

Oh and my project that is using turquoise? I am having 5 vintage metal garden chairs, that are all rusty and old, repainted in turquoise.  I think it will look terrific on my (some day) chocolate brown Ipe deck.

    Amazing shots of a great colour. The berries are just stunning. I have a teal blue hibiscus that I’ve been nursing for 3 years to get a bloom. I hope that 2010 truely is the year of teal in my garden.
