Color Crush: Turquoise + Gold

Turquoise has long been one of my favorite colors. Although there are several shades of blue that I really like, I have never considered blue a favorite of mine. I believe the reason that I gravitate towards turquoise as much as I do is its underlying warmth. It doesn’t feel cold at all the way that other blues do, and it is almost universally flattering. The lovely warmth it possesses allows it to lend itself so beautifully to various shades of gold, the combination of which is my ultimate color crush at the moment.

This color combination isn’t just gorgeous for interiors, it also makes for a fabulous pairing in accessories!

Oh, I'm SO right there with you! I've been lovin' on "turq-WAZ" for as long as I can remember, but the mix with gold (a newer fetish) makes me insanely happy!


I have my bathroom painted entirely in Tiffany turquoise, with everything else in a simple natural. It is cheerful, and refreshing for me.

I really love that workspace! If only the bulletin board was covered in a pretty fabric.
