favorite things: turquoise

My favorite color is, without any doubt, turquoise.  
It always has been.
I would love to have the all the rooms in my house painted various shades of turquoise.
Alas, turquoise is not exactly neutral.  In fact, it is gorgeously girlie!  
So I will stick to subtle accents.
For dear hubby's sake.
Turquoise tends to make anything look more amazing.
The following images were found
and only make me love the color more...

I could get away with lots of lovely turquoise in the nursery:
I simply had to promise Hubby that the next bedroom I designed for Baby Boy 
would be all sports...or trucks...or something extremely boyish!
Check out the entire nursery {HERE}. 
Also, in our outdoor space I have slowly been adding various 
turquoise accents, such as the market umbrella, throw pillows
and several DIY painted terra cotta planters:
Latest additions?
These ceramic citronella pots from Pier1:

Also, I finally found a use for this turquoise glass vase I found at a 
garage sale ages ago.  I just filled it with river rocks and 
added a bamboo stalk for a 
simple, zen centerpiece:

Do you adore turquoise, too?
I would love to know how you
infuse this color into your decor
whether subtly
or boldly!
{And if you have entire walls painted turquoise, then YES, 
I am very jealous.}


  1. Girl, your nursery is so cute...this is such an exciting time_being pregnant with your first. :)
    We lease a house that has turquoise painted on 1 wall in the master. At first I was like, umm, I don't know about this...but now I love it! I love the variety of how many other colors go with it so well.

  2. Hey sweets,
