Turquoise, 'The' Colour of 2010

Five months ago Pantone unveiled Color of the Year for 2010:
PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise

"CARLSTADT, N.J., Dec. 8, 2009 –Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company (NASDAQ: XRIT), and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced PANTONE® 15-5519 Turquoise, 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 well-being."

Very interesting? I made Aldo's Mirror in December of 2008.
Note to Pantone: Call me next year.

I shall be sure to consult with you when I make my next big design decision.
I just bought a new summer purse and it is turquoise! Phew. How lucky can one get?
