Turquoise and Purple

Ideal Home
When I saw Cameron Diaz at the Costume Institute Gala back in 2007 sporting a stunning purple dress paired with a gorgeous turquoise necklace and earrings, I practically started drooling. (Go look at a picture of her here....totally fab, no?) Purple and Turquoise? I had never considered it before then. Now every time I see a room with the colors, I automatically think back to her, and love the combo even more. And if you see me running around in a purple top or dress, wearing one of my many turquoise accessories, you'll know why!

Thanks Erin, I feel like you posted this for me since it's my favorite color combination :) I just bought an 8x10 frame from Pottery Barn and printed my print "Turquoise Spring Fling" for my bedroom, since it has these colors! I can't wait to have a turquoise and purple room!!!

Have a great weekend!

PS I was at Joann's yesterday (I don't know if you guys have them in Minn., but they're going to have buy one, get one free frames starting Sunday.)

Before I forget, the dress and turquoise necklace Cameron Diaz wore has to be my favorite ensemble ever!

Love this combo... and with white bleached floors? Perfect!

Given that it's a darker shade of Turquoise, the purple and the color actually compliment each other fantastically.

I'm not normally a fan of purple but the turquoise brings out a warmer side of it - maybe it's just the hues that were chosen. But those, I like.

What a great combo with a a little splash of black. The picture of Cameron---What can we say! Stunning! That girl is beautiful. As I am sure you will be with that color combination. As always thank you for another great post.

Not something I would think about either but it does look fabulous. The purples are rich to match the depth of the turquoise which is probably what makes it work.

Hi, I have been a long-time lurker, but purple (my fave) and turquoise together has left me no other choice than to speak out! I LOVE it! So vibrant!

The second picture should be my bedroom, I love it! I can't believe I haven't seen this more often, the colour combo works so unbelievably well!

I wouldn't have really thought about using these two colors together, but the combination is really beautiful.

Joselyn said...

What a beautiful suprise? I would never have thought to mix turquoise and purple together.
