  3. I call it Tiffany blue...this colour speaks to me. So much so, I think I will paint my the doors on the second floor this colour, (leave the trim white). We are about to have new reach-in closets installed, with half solid-half opaque glass doors, so they shall be blue also.
    Thank you for cementing this idea!

  5. I soooo agree. Except when the usually lovely turquoise pool turns gteen...not so pretty then. Just sayin'.

    Number four for me ... that distressed cupboard is wonderful, and, I know they are not turquoise but, I love the candlesticks too. XXXX

  10. Turquoise/aqua is my favorite color! It looks so good in design! I've always loved that ghost chair as well!

  11. I feel so shallow when I say this post reminds me of Tiffany... but how can you not love their little turquoise boxes? I used to be able to do a separate turquoise clothes wash as I had so much in my wardrobe but it seems to have gone out of style since then - perhaps not in the design world?

  13. Turquoise is it this year & these are some beauties. Sorry I've been so out of touch. Busy, busy, busy but missing my favorite blogs. Can't wait to dive back in. Hope you are well.
