Ok first off SORRY for so many pictures today! I started this not realizing how many I'd compiled! Next time I promise I won't wait so long to do a readers' room post! cool are these?! Isn't it amazing how everyone uses turquoise in a different way? How the different shades look great with different colors, create so many different moods? Above is why I love the color. And why I love you guys. You're all so creative! I wish you all lived around Minneapolis so I could come sit in your homes and enjoy the inspiring spaces you've created. Thank you for sending me your photos...each one truly brings me joy! And with that, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy! :)


Sarah @ Dream in Domestic said...

Oh my!!! So many inspiring spaces. It's going to take me a while to fully digest all the beauty and creativity of these spaces. What a great post for a Friday!

Have a great weekend, Erin!

Howcome I never tire of this colour?! Hm... well good it is, as my entire home is decorated with it :p Lol

Have a nice weekend!

Caitlin @ That House on the Corner said...

Yo have some very talented blue loving readers. I particularly like the wallpaper covered furniture, very charming. Thanks for sharing.

I like pics 3-5 (Nancy of Marcus Design), and especially love that white cabinet. How would you classify this style? I'm curious, because I tend to gravitate toward this look, but don't know what to call it, lol.

Kathi said...

What a fun post! It's great to see how others use my favorite color!
Thanks Erin! Can't wait 'til next time! :D

Certainly no need to say 'sorry' for so many pictures -- what an absolute TREAT to see all of them! What a great post, Erin. You worked hard on it and did a fantastic job. I want that "Do not Spit on the Floor" sign! LOL! Have a great weekend.

Gramercy Home said...

Your readers have some great ideas! Thanks for sharing all those pics - love peaking in other people's homes. Happy Weekend.

yippiemom said...

Thanks, Erin for featuring one of my turquoise inspired rooms. Your site is an inspiration to those of us with a serious case of the "blues." I just can't seem to get away from using at least a little bit in every room I put together. It is definitely my new neutral!

Rose - The Center of My Self said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! I feel like a glutton indulging in all this beautiful turquoise and aqua and teal deliciousness!
So many wonderful and different looks (and ideas to copy - hee!). Love the aqua dresser in that perfectly pink room. So many wonderful, beautiful spaces! I'm going to have to follow some of these links and go to their sites.
(One day, I'll send you pics, too. My downstairs is one open space with 3 different shades of aqua.)

Trish @TheOldPostRoad said...

You were sweet to include my girls' room! Thanks!

Cindy said...

thank you for featuring my bathroom in your post. this lovely color is slowly seeping into every room in my house.

i'll have to send some more pictures later; thanks again...

Shorely Chic said...

inspiration at its finest - real!! I love it, great job

Red Gate Farm said...

All I can say is WOW! I've been into pale green for years (and many other shades) but have just recently been expanding to turquoise. I seem to be incorporating it into every room lately. Will be back to check out more of you blog soon.

Lovely Scribbles said...

What a fun post, Erin!! It's great to see all of the different personalities come out through the different designs.

Ariadone said...

Empress of The Eye said...

OMG! I am speechless.

pammm. said...

Awesome! I loved all places!

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

Those were wonderful - no such thing as too many photos of a room with turquoise in it.

Anne-Marie @ 10 Rooms said...

Thanks so much for including Coco's room in your post, Erin - we were in such good company - loads and loads of turquoise inspiration..

Priscila Peters said...

My favourite combination of colors: blue & white, but after checking these photos I love blue & brown. Interesting...

Mindy said...

Thanks so much for including my little boys room and painted armoire with all of these lovely rooms and projects! So many ideas!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Holy cow! I am definitely going to be using these for inspiration when I move.

And it was SO nice meeting you today despite the heat!

Kelle Dame said...

What a fun post! Such a versatile color and so interesting to see how everyone uses it. Next time feel free to use my turquoise chest in the collection :)

Shannon said...

It is so refreshing to see real people homes and the turquoise rooms they live in =) Thanks for sharing all the photos with us. You are one of the very, very few web pages I have "saved as a favorite". I have loved turquoise since I was a teen and it has just evolved with me as I have aged.

luvmy5boyscora said...

RHONDA S.-could you pleaseee tell me what color of taupe paint you used on your walls? I have been looking for a color like that.

Simply lovely rooms! What a great weekend read!

MichCherie said...

Please don't apologize for all the pics Erin, because I just LOVE seeing all these rooms. How very inspiring and motivating to see such creativity and beauty. They are all just gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing them :)

Jenn @ Living Luxe for Less said...

There are so many inspiring pictures here! Great I need to go out and find a little more turquoise for my home!

Lisa SP said...

You know I am just one suburb west of you. You could come over, but it might stress me out too much.

Mary Jean, also known as "The Dough Nut" said...

Thanks so much for showing my DIY Dog Bed! What an honor to be on your awesome blog!!! My son said to me the other day "Mom, why do you paint everything turquoise?"

BECAUSE I LOVE IT! So much inspiration here!

ana said...

Every room is so magical and inspirational!!! I love specially the bathrooms and nursery... thanks for sharing!!!

Arlette - what colour on the dining room walls? very sophisticated, darker but full of depth and calming.
suggestion: organize readers projects by room - im researching turquoise for the bedroom.
LOVE the kids beds put into the niche of the attic - best use of space without only the heads under the angled ceiling - will put this in my ideas file for when we add another storey.
brilliant & inspiring
thank you for this website
turquoise makes me feel free and uplifted
