interesting choice:
it's a very serene colour ( serenity is exactly what the world is in need of)
and i can see it as a great accent colour ( it is not overwhelming)
works well with so many other colours ( harmony)

the trend will be toward colours that are soothing to the eye.
a subdued calm.
cremes and whites.
