We are already being bombarded with depressing fiscal predictions for the New Year, so if there's only one prediction we can lean on, it is the announcement today from the global authority on colour, Pantone, that PANTONE® 15-5519 Turquoise will be the official colour for 2010.

"... 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 wellbeing".

With a statement like this, what's not to look forward to in 2010?
