A mix of blue and green, turquoise can feel masculine or feminine, tranquil or exciting, depending on its relative brightness and how it’s used. In color therapy, it heals emotions to create emotional balance and stability, recharging the spirit. In decor, turquoise can play many roles… paired with black and white, it immediately draws the eye, while it seems fun and retro when used beside pinks and blacks. Turquoise and gray is soft and inviting, while turquoise and red is dramatic and vital.
Turquoise is a strong enough color to hold its own against large, striking details like the gigantic clock face.
Tiny turquoise details pop in this mint, red, and white kitchen, though it can seem a bit out of place at first.
Mod couches in turquoise paired with dark brown is serious, but also calming. This would be a beautiful room in which to nap or read.
Here, a turquoise door is paired with a turquoise kitchen countertop, and these may be the only colorful details in an otherwise monochromatic space.
Again, it’s all in the details. Turquoise is beautiful as the main color in a room, but also gives room accessories a little lift, like in this small home office.
And finally, the turquoise accent I love in this room is the strip of color along the seats of the black chairs. It lessens the impact of the glass bottles, which might otherwise feel too beachy or casual.
