Turquoise, 2010 Color of the Year.

Chintz, Yellow and Turquoise.

  Once seen mainly in resort decor and clothing, turquoise now is making its way into everyday homes. 
In addition, turquoise and other ocean-inspired blues reflect 
consumers appreciation of the environment and nature.

In general, a high-voltage color such as turquoise is best confined to smaller areas, such as a single wall. 
But if you're not brave enough to splash the color of the year on your walls, 
at least use accessories to update your decor.
Place a turquoise lamp, picture frames, towels or a painted chair for a pop of color. 
The result will be magical.
Hugs and Kisses, Lisa.

  1. I adore turquoise - it reminds me of islands in sun. Your pictures are so shabby chic - love decorating with this bright, happy colour.
    Although I think this colour needs the sun to for it to make impact. Have a nice weekend;-)

    I love love love turquoise! I def agree that it is the color this summer. Last summer my color was coral, but this summer I've been ditched the coral. I was thinking about painting my room a lighter turquoise. Even though I have the paint I haven't had time to do it. Anyway, love the blog! I will def post about my crush!

    Take care
