Incorporating Turquoise Into Your Home
by
Even as summer comes to a close I am always reminded and inspired by the glistening combination of sun and water when I am out in our pool room.
Adding wallpaper to a room immediately creates an infusion of color and design.
This fun wallpaper I chose for the pool room enabled me to bring in the rich color of aqua water and turquoise sky.


I also love to incorporate hints of luscious blues around the room – like this small shell collection that adds a dreamy touch of resort living.

Shells, flip-flops, and bright turquoise colored towels are all great accessories to add to a room.
Our back yard fun house is adorned with accents like these.


Bold sage and creme stripes are great colors that compliment any shade of blue, especially turquoise.
If decorating an outdoor living space - fabrics like the print on this sofa will fade naturally with the suns rays.
fear not, a little "vintage" like appeal looks great against the textiles in this room.
Personalizing a space by adding a collection of things you love is always important.
Our eclectic mix of china and glassware is a perfect way to harmonize your rooms aesthetic during teatime.
Floral plates with scrolled edges, napkins and tablecloths with one of a kind blue tinted glasses all add charm to a living space. So don’t be afraid to include and mix in other strong colors and styles.
Whether inside or out, this special color gives off the idea of open air serene living, bringing the outdoors in –
which is what this room is all about.
Scattering plenty of blue shades around a room is the best way to gradually add that favorite color (Turquoise!)
you’ve been dying to try out in your home.

Hey, I did a post about your blog on mine!
http://goldenagain.blogspot.com/2011/09/blogs-que-amo-house-of-turquoise.html
Since it's in Portuguese (I'm from Brazil), I'll translate it for you:

"Either dominating the scene or just to make an ornate, the turquoise color always seems to fit so good when used in decoration.
Okay, I'm not any expert. But I love to spend hours looking at decor websites and always sigh a little when I see that color.
It gives the impression of a joyful, fresh and more feminine shade of blue than others. Especially when combined with white, pink, coral or gold tones. I love it!

The House of Turquoise is a decoration blog inspired by this color. It has several photos of the house that I'll have someday(lol)!
I could spend the whole day looking at it..."

And then I put some pictures of photos I love from "House of Tuquoise".
Hope you don't mind! I really love it!

=)
