In focus: turquoise items

On the stool

With the table and the stool painted turquoise I am more aware of the colour when I see it, especially in my own home. I’ve obviously been drawn to it for several years without taking notice.

Turquoise candle by the bed

The glass bowl, behind the rose patterned candle on my bed side table, was a gift from my brother a few years ago. I think he bought it at a thrift store.


My latest owl is a miniature ceramic piece from my friend Margot. It’s not turquoise, but very cute on the edge of the table:

Also turquoise: my nail polish right now, the inside lining of my black winter jacket and the striped carpet in the living room.

What colours are you focusing on right now?

  1. Love, love, love this color in your photos! I find myself using lots of teal, orange, and blue…maybe not all together, though! :-)

  2. Turquoise is one of my most favorite colors! I saw a coffee table painted turquoise a couple years back and i still can’t get it out of my mind! I am pretty certain my own coffee table will be turquoise one day soon!

    This post simply made my eyes happy! Thank you!

  3. Love these colors–you have a real eye for colors that brighten the season. I still like Payne’s Gray and Titan Buff, but those are my go-to colors. Today, when I was foam-marbling papers, I reached for blues and greens!

  4. This is my favourite colour. For me it’s optomistic, youthful, the colour of the swimming pool in summer!
