Decorating With Color: Turquoise

PicMonkey Collage

Sometimes color can be scary, & sometimes we need some inspiration for
using color in our own homes. That is why I wanted to start this new series
on the blog all about using color in our homes & ways we can bring color into
our spaces from accessories to paint, from affordable to more expensive.
The first color up is turquoise. The color turquoise is blue with yellow in it
giving it a blue green tone. It can be light or dark, more green or more yellow.
It gives off peace, calm and tranquility of blue and the balance and
growth of green with the uplifting energy of yellow. That being said,
It’s pretty much the perfect color…


This ottoman is seriously the perfect pop of color in this neutral living
room. It adds an element of fun & quickly becomes a focal point of the room!


You could skip the tufted ottoman and go with a patterned turquoise ottoman
like this one. This ottoman could also be made from an old coffee table
as well! An easy DIY project to bring turquoise into your home.


Adding drapes with pops of turquoise is the perfect way to frame your windows
& add a nice contrast to white walls. These drapes pair perfectly with the
turquoise accent pillows.

This very soft turquoise island is dreamy & is a less bold way of adding
turquoise to your home. & all you would need is a can of paint to
transform your island from average to stunning!

for a serious pop of turquoise in the kitchen.

any kitchen & paired with those red doors it’s amazing!
