Red and turquoise has always been a favorite combo for me...I love the cheery energy it brings to any room. The vintage appeal can be a really fun look too. The first and 2nd picture above, the rooms by Diane Bergeron and Jennifer Flanders, are definitely my favorites. Classy, yet fun and happy spaces. That's what I'm talking about! Have a most fabulous weekend everyone! :)

Wow - so very sophisticated What a contrast - soothing turquoise and energizing red.. Love Tobi Fairley's..

orange sparrow said...

I love that combo too! The dishes I registered are turquoise and red... so I'll just have to have a kitchen in those colors! Darn! ;)

All of these are lovely, I'll have to remember those kitchens for future reference.

Southern Aspirations said...

An unexpected combo but love how several of these look! My faves are when the turquoise is a calm backdrop and the red adds a pop of color and energy!

RLG said...

Great post, Erin. Love this color combo. I'm especially loving the photos with the twin beds. I had hoped to do something so inspired with my girls, but budget rules! Have a great weekend. xoxo

Ken said...

Wow, I love the first two kitchens but then I've always had a thing for 40s/50s appliances and fixtures. Nice post!

Paris Hotel Boutique said...

OMG, I LOVE turquoise and red! What a great post with wonderful photos. I think I'm going to have to Tweet about it now!!

Lovely Scribbles said...

I really like this color combination, too. It's unique but definitely fun.:) The rooms from Domino are my favorites!

Kathi said...

One of my favorite combinations! I've had Jennifer Flander's bedroom on my wish list for a long time! I also LOVE Jane Costlick's cottages!
Great Post! Just dreaming away here!

Joselyn said...

Love each and everyone of these! Erin, I sent you an email asking for your design advice for my post today: Primed and Ready! Welcome your input and hope you're feeling better.

La chica said...

It works!! Love the strawberry with the turquoise...

Cristin said...

It is a great color scheme. That dining room chandelier is fab.

xo,

Love this color combo! I find red to be less harsh with turquoise than with black or when it stands alone. If you are trying to bring in the red trend, this is the way to go. It really takes on a softer side. Beautiful post, thanks Erin!

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

One of my favorite combo's and actually one that I wanted to discuss with a client I'm meeting with next week!

Thanks for all the amazing pictures!

You never disappoint!

Sorry for the lack of comments last couple of weeks. Have had major laptop issues, which made internet access a bit difficult!

The Cottage Cheese said...

It's all just too good! I love the bedroom in the first picture, and every single kitchen pictured. Seriously, I love every one of them enough to have as my own kitchen. Of course Pam's turquoise kitchen from Retro-renovation is unbelievable. She did such a fantastic job on that renovation!

Marie said...

Hi Erin! I just browsed through your entire blog...j'adore! Just like you, I luv the color turquoise so I painted my house Tiffany Blue. Someday, when you have time, come and visit me.

I love the turquoise and red--especially the very first photo.

ana said...

I never thought about turquoise and red but it looks amazing!!! I love every picture specially the one with the turquoise wall and the stripped red sofas
:) have a great weekend

Melissa said...

Ahhhh... turquoise and red. My absolute favorite color combination! Thanks for sharing these pictures... so inspiring! :)

Anonymous said...

Meh. Guess I'm in the minority this time. I think the red overwhelms and detracts from the subtle soft turquoise.

Love your blog, though. I go to it everyday. Impressive range of images, and generally it's just a total mood-lifter. And as other visitors have said, now I find myself REALLY noticing turquoise colors anywhere I go! LOL...

SimplyGrove said...

These are amazing!! Great roundup:)

VictoriaArt said...

Erin, while your at turqouise/red/white rooms, check out my latest post, my family room is just that. Not as stylish, but good for our wild family life!
Love all your pictures, such inspiration, as always:

Sa-Sea Boutique said...

wow! i was jUST telling my husband I have decided to paint the red legs on our farm table white....because "they didn't match alll the turquoise". hmmm....maybe i REALLY need to rethink this!

MissBliss said...

i think red does for turquoise what salt does for chocolate chip cookies!

I love chocolate and don't know why salt makes the dough so good, (of course, it makes the sweet even sweeter,) and I love turquoise but didn't realize how much red does for it until seeing it on your blog!

Bravo, Erin ;)

JBeaudetStudios said...

Hi I just found your blog and love it! I love turquoise too!

A Perfect Peach said...

absolutely love this color combo! The red & white chandelier reminds me of candyland - so fun!

Tee of Dragonfly Cottage said...

Thanks to your wonderful pics turquoise was chosen for our laundry room. And there are lots of white cabinets, gray stone floor, ferns plus red enamelware sprinkled around. Very cheery for doing the work.

Thank you for showing me the beauty of Turquoise. I've never liked it and it may have even been one of my least favorite colors. But your place looks really nice!

Down Comforter said...

This seems like such an unusual color combination - but I totally LOVE it!!!

Kristin said...

This is quickly turning into one of my favorite color combos. I'm also really into light green -- sort of granny smith apple green but more muted with dark red. it's that pop of red that gets you!

Susan S. said...

I guess I had never realized it, but red and turquoise are a favorite combo of mine too!

Also you might want to delete the ad by disa. It has nothing to do with your blog. Actually, worse than that.
