  • Gorgeous ideas for how to make turquoise work in your home

    1, Make a statement

    Turquoise is a strong colour, but why shy away from it? A large rug or carpeting, even with furniture in similar tones – like above – can stay on the right side of OTT, as long as you go for a variety of shades rather than block colours.

    2, Bring it to the bedroom

    The majorty of bedroom walls are neutral coloured, maybe yellow at a push, so why not incorporate some turquoises and teals? These colours can be surprisingly calming and brighten up rooms wonderfully – the perfect antidote to dull mornings.

    3, Create a theme

    Why stick your blues to just one room? Take a hint from this home and line the walls of the hallways with a pop of colour – you’ll be surprised how many pieces you already own have hints of turquoise in them already, and this splash will pick up on those glorious details.

    4, Use it in your smaller pieces

    You don’t have to go big or go home, try adding in some smaller pieces of furniture in turquoise, like this cupboard or stool. Even the most minimal of houses will benefit from this wave of brightness. It really works amazingly against a monochrome backrgound!

    5, Embrace the fun

    Turquoise is an exciting, vibrant colour, so why not enhance these elements with a touch of whimsicality? This hidden workspace is brighten up with the colour use and turns what could have been an ordinary desk into something magical.

    6, Don’t forget the bathroom

    Why go with an all-white bathroom when there is a myriad of under-the-sea inspired shades to choose from? These textured tiles show off all the wonderful tones of turquoise and create a soothing space to splash around in.
