Get in on the trend - just add turquoise

Posted in Living by Katherine Garsi

The people who decide which colors are “in” and which are “out” have announced that turquoise is “in.” And it is the official "color of the year.”

Calming, dreamy and vibrantly tropical all at the same time, don’t be surprised if you start to see turquoise popping up when shopping for home décor. Everything from dishes, to couches, to electronics is turning turquoise this year.

Add turquoise to your home with some of these fun finds:

Turquoise lamp

Mod Aqua Table Lamp at Crate and Barrel.



Turquoise and White Lotus Embroidery Pillow Cover by Kainkain on Etsy.

Target dinnerware

ZaZen Crackle Dinnerware at Target.

Horchow chair

Old Hickory Tanner Turquoise Chair at Horchow. And yes, that really is turquoise leather embossed with a crocodile design.

  • I agree.

    A touch of turquoise can give any space a modern feel and is the perfect spring/summer accent color. However, there is such a thing as to much turquoise and as with anything good in life to much can be a bad thing. A single turquoise arm chair, good. A full turquoise sectional with matching shag rug and accent wall, BAD! Use your turquoise wisely folks. :)
