What is to colour for 2014

The colour of the year 2014 is……. 90GG 19/151 (also known as Teal).

“A tertiary colour, teal is the combination of primary blue and secondary green which today is used to describe several different tones of this majestic colour. Somewhere between blue and green it has come to symbolise balance, but should be combined with neutral tones and shades of wood so as not to overwhelm a space.”
