Blue-on-blue is a great way to incorporate turquoise into your décor and is, at the same time, a typical maritime combination that Leatrice says has retro appeal. There are many different shades of blue you can experiment with—from soft pastels to rich, deep shades—so be creative and inventive in your initial designs, she says.
Other cool tones that work well with turquoise include violet, which creates a stunning combination of two complex colors (green-blue and red-blue), and yellow-green, which results in a look that is both clear and striking.
