Turquoise - the perfect colour?

Posted on May 16 2017

Turquoise is really a blue with yellow in it, giving it a blue/green tone. It is a colour that provides peace, calm and tranquillity with the blue in it, balance from the green and the uplifting properties of yellow. Perhaps this is why so many of us think it is the perfect colour! There are various shades of turquoise itself – sometimes light, sometimes darker or it may have more green or more yellow.

Adding turquoise homewares to your home is probably the easiest (and least expensive) way to bring this stunning colour into your space. The great thing about this vibrant colour is that it can be used all on its own or mixed so well with other colours within your décor.  If you want to keep an earthy look, mix brown and turquoise homewares or dark brown, beige and turquoise to remind you of the earth, sand, ocean and sky. Choose to mix turquoise with vibrant colours such as red or orange for a daring but
eye catching look that can work really well together.  Silver and turquoise is also a winning combination so mix and match homewares in these colours for an elegant and stylish look.

Turquoise is a versatile colour that works across all styles of decorating. From modern homewares to French country or traditional, this colour can be used but the key is to use it in a way that suits your personality and space.

The bathroom is a great place to add turquoise accessories to create a relaxed feeling and a beachy vibe. Think turquoise shells, starfish, candle holders, towels or soap dispensers.

Turquoise is also a great colour for your outdoor area to create a relaxed, bright summery feel all year round. Add turquoise cushions to your outdoor furniture, turquoise candle holders on your outdoor tables or hang turquoise lanterns from the alfresco ceiling.

Whatever way you decide to use this amazing colour, you are sure to find some beautiful turquoise homewares within our range to suit your style and budget.
