The Blues....







Look at all of these little pieces of eye candy! I have recently decided that I would REALLY like to add a little bit of TURQUOISE to my home decor. We have a lot of chocolate, reds, tans, golds, and a little bit of black going on at the moment. I really think I can get away with adding some turquoise in! Don't you?! I am thinking that I could make turquoise into a good transitional color with the seasons, it won't be too springy or summery if I am pairing it with chocolate and black.

I am really wanting to buy two older wing back chairs to recover in a turquoise fabric or leather for one of our sitting areas. Also...we have an antique dresser that we painted black and are using as a buffet/accent table. I might just paint over it with a pretty turquoise and sand it down some so that some of the black shows through. Make it kind of rustic. What do you think?! The thought of adding in turquoise brings me pure excitement! I feel like it will add just the right splash of color to our decor!

Have any of you painted anything turquoise???
Do you have the name of a good paint color that you use or know of one?? I need suggestions please!

XOXO,

HILARY

Sounds like my decor :)
Yellows & greens are good colors to consider as well.

I love blue! My couches are a sky blue and the rest of my apartment is black and white. I love the added pop that the blue gives.
