The color family of Turquoise and Aquamarine has more to do with feeling and creative expression than with rational thought. These colors between green and blue the shades of turquoise, blue green and aquamarine relate to transformation, evolution, change. Aquamarine: stimulates the intellect and stabilizes the emotions, improves confidence, and the ability to stand fast, helps communication. Turquoise: supportive and protective, heals the spirit, soothing, increases contentment.

  3. Dear Patricia,

    this may not my personal favourite colour, but I have to admit it's very confident.
    I can't help not thinking of Greece's archipelago. So beautiful with these shades!

    Have a sweet Easter holiday,
    Ingela

  5. Where are these houses? I want to move in tomorrow...so soothing, cheerful, elegant.
    I should (and I will) have my front door (inside) painted that colour. Thanks for the idea!
    I am also colouring eggs tonight (in Italy actually we do it on Good Friday) and I already bought (as every year) greens and blues to mix so they will hopefully look like the beautiful eggs on your Post.
    Happy Easter.

  6. We don't have any turquoise in our house, but I do like the colour a lot :-) I have that last picture of the bedroom with the stripes on the ceiling in my inspiration folder too :-)

    I'm toying with the idea of a pale aquamarine and lavender colour scheme in one of our rooms.... inspiration from Alkemie :-)

    Happy Easter to you too!!

  11. I love how this color, while a bit edgy, is used effectively in both traditional and contemporary designs. It's thought provoking really...

  16. It reminds me of those teeny little Tiffany's boxes that hold such precious things!
    You've actually given me a great idea for our front door! (We are still in our 19-month-long reno--argh!). If it weren't for inspirational & creative blogs like yours, I would have given up on the house a long time ago!

  27. The aquamarine door spoke to me, and I'm glad I clicked it. It opened up to some gorgeous photos. Love the dining room and nest of eggs, especially. Love to see posts on color . . . I'm craving it since neutrals so often rule. (Not against neutrals, as I adore the tranquil settings. Color is just so daring and fun....) Will be back to read more. Thanks, -susan

  28. I have just come across this blog and have to say I have really enjoyed browsing though it. Thank you for sharing this post I have never given a thought too using Turquoise except maybe a scattered cushion here and there I just love the door and one wall done in this color it really makes a statement,

  29. Turquoise furniture such as, ottomans, chaises, chairs, sofas, and headboards can be harder to find than one may think even by searching the web. Since turquoise is the color of the year and is also my favorite color I thought I would make a comment for others like myself.

    I have been working with a custom furniture designer in the UK. Her name is Elaine and her company is Obama Catering Furniture. I just adore the color turquoise and initially contacted her to have a turquoise chaise made. I had such a hard time finding anything like that in the US. This month I had her make me a turquoise and chocolate armless chair. Her furniture is BEAUTIFUL!! She can use any fabric and style imaginable and her prices are super reasonable even for shipping overseas.

    If anyone is interested in seeing pics of her furniture or would like to contact her please shoot me an email at superk1216@yahoo.com.
