TURQUOISE

3 Great ways to incorporate turquoise in your life

  • Pair Turquoise with colours of equal intensity and clarity ~ as in the vintage pillow with the solid textured pillow above
  • Use Turquoise in a monochromatic room ranging light to dark versions of the same colour ~ as in the bedroom below
  • Turquoise as an accent is an excellent hit of colour for a neutral palette ~ as in the throw, cushion and vases in the living room two below .
