Decorating With Turquoise

MonochromaticComplementarySplit Complementary


Perhaps one of the most pleasing palettes, analogous colors reside right next to each other on the color wheel. For example, a turquoise analogous color scheme includes blue and green. Since they share a common component, these hues always look good together.

Turquoise is such a lovely hue, especially since it calls to mind a favorite destination–the Caribbean! It makes sense then that this true in-between shade's analogous colors are in fact blue and green–colors often associated with nature's vitality!

Focus on the green column of the color wheel for your wall color (like this crisp melon hue) to welcome the outdoors in. You couldn't ask for a better backdrop to start building your turquoise-tinged color scheme!

Need another reason why this shade is such a wise choice? It makes the true blue accessories look extra fabulous! One of the best ways to saturate a space with color is through the use of glassware because it reflects light beautifully. Turquoise is often thought of in terms of jewelry. But instead of hanging your pieces, select home décor that conveys a similar look and feel. Contemporary wall art with subtle strokes of turquoise and green and a complementing area rug with interlocking circles are great ways to tie the look together.
