As much as I love turquoise paired with totally different colors (pretty much every color, if you haven't figured that out by now...), I also have a big weakness for keeping things in the family. I've been super excited to do this post for awhile, but it's taken me a long time to collect the images. Currently I am completely crazy for turquoise paired with cobalt blue. It's been really hard to find pictures of that combo...but if anyone can find 'em, I will! Of course I always think it's fun to add a bright pop of yellow, orange or green in an otherwise blue room too. I hope you enjoyed all these cool blue rooms! Have a fantastic weekend everyone! :)

I love this color combination, even though the colors are so similar, but I guess that's what happens when you are obsessed with blue, you like as much of it as you can get!

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

Love it! Very fresh and strong!

Greet said...

Oh yes I enjoyed these pictures!
Beautiful! My favourite is the one of the kitchen with the blue/turquoise table!

Have a nice weekend!

Is there a color turquoise does not look good with?! Lovely pics.

Lovely Scribbles said...

Whoa, eye-candy overload!! Love, love, love it! Today's post is kind of like the end of a fireworks show and they keep firing off all the biggest and best fireworks...boom, boom, boom (my favorite part, by the way). AWESOME!

P.S. You made my day, Erin! Shucks, thanks for the kind comment on my blog today. :)

Wowza! If anyone could find pics of this combo, I know it would be you, Erin! I agree with Lovely Scribbles - it's like a fireworks show - bang! pow! screeeeeeee! As Down Comforter said, very reminiscent of the colors of the Greek isles.Great collection of pics. Thanks, Erin! Hope you have a great weekend!

Gorgeous!! I think those 2 colours with the addition of gold would also make a stunning colour combo for a christmas tree!!

Chic Coles (Cole Design) said...

This is an AMAZING post! There is so much inspiration in these images. Thank you very much for linking back to us! My favorite thing about this post is the "wavy" patterned ottoman in the picture by Martha Stewart. It is so fun and would be a great addition to room!

Amanda said...

These pictures are fabulous! I'm a fan of turquoise paired with dark brown. Our bedroom is painted an aqua color, and I find it to have a very calming effect. Maybe all your turquoise pictures will give me some extra decor inspiration!
