Color Inspiration: Turquoise!

I love the color turquoise. It evokes summer, beach glass, and a natural beauty that is not too nature-y.

Looking around the house, it is not obvious how much I love this color. As if on a scavenger hunt, I went looking for the color turquoise.

Ceramics are a great way to show off your favorite color, whatever it may be.

My dishes are all turquoise. I love the way they bring out the palest color blue in the tile on my table.

I embrace the entire range of turquoise! As if I were a bee and could see the whole color spectrum before me. From pale to dark, from greens to blues. I use multiple hues of turquoise throughout the house.

Here on my (still to-do list) porch, I have hung a mosaic icon of the Holy Mother. She has a richly colored turquoise hair-thingy.

Together with color, you can draw inspiration from your heritage, your culture, or religion for your space.  This is an important aspect to creating a unique and comfortable space that is yours.

I love how the this turquoise pillow is paired with lime green, giving it’s traditional pattern an edgy flair.

How do you use color? For me, it is simple: Simply Turquoise.
