Inspired by TurquoiseAuthor:Abigail Stone
It’s another rainy, gloomy day here in San Francisco, and these gray-blue skies show no sign of abating. Rather than get bogged down in the funk of bad weather, I’ve been cheering myself with interiors that prominently feature a hue on the other end of blue’s color spectrum: bright, pop-y turquoise. How can you not conjure up sunshine-filled skies when looking at this color? It’s like if the entire city of Palm Springs was captured in one hue. Here are a few of my favorite rooms that utilize turquoise, whether covering the walls or simply in an accent piece or two.
Hello, instant impact! Fully saturated, glossy walls from Kendall Wilkinson.
This room (also by Marjorie Skouras) is no shrinking violet to begin with, but the inclusion of those eye-popping chandeliers is like the cherry on top of a sweetly decadent dessert.
We all know turquoise and coral tones are a match made in Lilly Pulitzer heaven, but the duo can do more than just Palm Beach-preppy. Here, they add warmth and interest to this eclectic kitchen. The cute dog doesn’t hurt, either. Lajos Geenen via Desire to Inspire.
