Incorporating Turquoise in Your Home
If you're inspired to incorporate turquoise into your home, Leatrice shares quick tips will give you the confidence you need to go forward.
More advice on boldly colored homes:
- If turquoise makes you timid, start with a color combination that is not a big stretch, such as any of the neutrals or blues.
- Find a pattern or print that already incorporates turquoise so you don't have to worry about finding many different accents and pieces that create the same visual effect.
- When using a pattern or print, add one or two other touches of turquoise in the room so the eye can travel around.
- When adding touches of turquoise, do not use items/spaces of equal size. Instead, use turquoise in one large way, one smaller way and one even tinier way. This will help create visual interest and make your home look expertly coordinated.
