Turquoise Won!

Monday, May 14, 2012

I am not surprised that turquoise won my Pantone Color of the Year poll. Here are the results:

Turquoise:  20 votes
Mimosa:  6 votes
Tangerine Tango:  4 votes
Honeysuckle:  3 votes

I was, however, surprised by the landslide win!  I voted for Honeysuckle.  I definitely want to include at least one of these cheery colors in our library.  I cannot wait to get started planning the room!


Turquoise is a pretty color.  


I love the turquoise accents in this pretty home library.

I appreciate those of you who voted.

Until next time...

  1. gorgeous photos and i love turquoise

  2. I'm not surprised turquoise won. There seems to be a whole bunch of turquoise lovin' people in blogland. I love it too, but the orange lover in me won out & I voted for tangerine tango.

  3. I can't remember what I voted for ... but it wasn't turquoise :)
    I'm all about green and white at the moment.

  4. That is one of my fav colors paired with orange!

    Happy Week!

  5. Hello! I love that photo and the turquoise color is gorgeous. I have absolutely none of it in my home so I always love to see how it's used - especially this time of year. It really pops! How are you? I feel like I haven't been catching up enough, and not stopping by to say hello often enough. Thinking about you. Hope the end of school goes well for the girls!

  6. Lovely. I'm definitely a turquoise fan. :)

  7. I love, love turquoise. It really always looks good in a room, and looks great with so many colors and styles.

  8. I love turqoise. It is really my favorite color, but this spring I just love that tangerine color. Your painting in your new header is beautiful. I love it. Have a great week. :D

  9. Turquoise/Teal are my favorite colors! :)

  10. Turquoise is so pretty..and tranquil! I just now got to looking at your header and the text kinda looks the same to me LOL, but I guess i do notice the title more...more bold! :)

    You know what I'm super duper in love with ?? Navy. I just am in love with Navy right now. Navy and pink are real cute together too..who knew?!

  11. Yay! To me, shades of blue/green are perfect for every season (depending on tone). :)

  12. Oh how I love a touch of turquoise! Beautiful in any decor and in my jewelry box! heehee!

  13. Turquoise is pretty, even though I don't have it in my home, when I see it in magazines or on blogs I always have to take a long look.

  14. Turquoise is pretty...and I love those photos! But...I think it will clash with my blue and yellow! lol I am such a stick-in-the-mud! Have a great week!...hugs...Debbie
