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 piece from our old front porch (Home Goods);
In the regal lion that guards over our mantel (TJ Maxx);
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);
In our sunroom throw (Deconstructed Living);
And in the frame and elephant on our shelf (Ikea and TJ Maxx, respectively);
In more shelf decor and books;
In the faux fur throw on our Living Room sofa (Home Goods);
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!
