With Turquoise being dubbed 2010 Color of the Year, I am flooding you with some images to inspire you to add a splash of it your designs - whether it is drowing your walls in a bucket of paint or simply using an accent piece of ceramics. It is perhaps my favorite color, and can transport me to the Caribbean just by being in it presence. I hope it conjures up some good feelings for you as well! Piacere!
