Turquoise: A Love Story

I’ve said before that I am particular about color, and if I were pressed to come up with my very favorite hue of my very favorite color it would have to be turquoise blue. Sometimes I call it teal. Sometimes I call it aqua. To be honest, I don’t know the exact difference, but I know that I am drawn to it viscerally and intensely.

I hadn’t realized before just how much I have used turquoise in the decor of my downstairs. Come. See for yourself.

In the wall hanging that adorns our Dining Room Wall with varying shades of my favorite color (TJ Maxx);

And the piece next to it, with a turquoise line down the center that ties it all together (inherited from my father’s old office);

And in the hand knit afgan on our white Barcelona Chair, accenting the Kilim rug behind it;

But my favorite part is that from the sunroom, the turquoise accents are all tied together and you can get one, great aqua-laced view from room to room to room.

So a love affair with turquoise, eh? I guess it could be worse!
