Much a hue about nothing
Periwinkle is PISSED, y’all!
The pigment police over at Pantone passed on ol’ Peri, turned up their noses to Teal, gave the color cold shoulder to Cerulean and unloaded a truckload of hell naw to Navy when choosing the ultimate shade of super significance for all the year 2010:
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says there was no runner-up to turquoise in her mind because people are craving escapism and freshness after the butfuckingly tough year we’ve endured.

“The shade is on the cusp of blue and green, which makes it both inviting and serene — characteristics associated with blues — and invigorating and luminous, which comes from green,” she explained.
::: Blue Green is all HELLLOOOOOO BITCHES?! :::
“Turquoise is universally appealing,” said Jane Schoenborn, design director at Lilly Pulitzer. “It puts everyone in the same state of mind — on vacation.”
::: Aquamarine is NOT amused :::
Pantone’s color for 2009 was Mimosa Yellow [don’t act like you didn’t know that] because it was going to be a time of economic uncertainty [HAHAHA – ya think?!] and political change [thank gawd!] — so a universal sense of optimism, enlightenment and imagination was going to be nothing short of super duper crucial and Pantone felt the Mimmzer was the best qualified color of the bunch to counteract this New Great Depression™.
::: Canary Yellow couldn’t have cared less but Lazer Lemon found the entire enterprise laughable :::
But all that’s behind us now that my boyfriend has audaciously hopified everyone to infinity!
Pantone predicts John Q Public is ready to plan a little vakay with his new bff Turquoise …
… until next year when he finds out that while he was on holiday his finances failed, his dog died and his job dried up … and we learn that only Neon Carrot or Vivid Tangerine can turn that mess around!
