The Pantone Color Institute announced this month that their Color of The Year for 2010 is Turquoise (specifically, their color Pantone 15-5519). From their press release, “It 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. Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.”

Here is a selection of I Dream of France products that contain turquoise…
