Best Paint Colors for Your Home: TURQUOISE


Welcome to the latest edition of Remodelaholic’s Color Files!  I have to admit, I was kind of surprised to see how excited of you got about last week’s color, true blue.    I didn’t know that pure blue had so many fans–awesome!  This week, I’m pretty sure you’ll have a few things to say about another saturated color hue:  TURQUOISE.

Turquoise is the name of a blue-green color….and a semi-precious stone that is blue-green in color.  (It’s one of those chicken or the egg things–which came first, the name of the stone or the name of the color?)  It looks great on it’s own or paired with other bright colors.    Turquoise is a happy color.  If you look at the examples below, you’ll notice that none of the featured rooms is the least bit moody; I think turquoise just can’t help but make people happy.

    I love the pop of color on the door in the last photo. I never thought of painting a door, just walls. Definitely something neat to consider.

      I also love that color and was disappointed that it was not given. I have been searching for the right shades of turquoise for 9 months now and the one I have is nearly exactly that color. Try Olympic Paints Bimini Blue # A57-6. Goos Luck

    I love turquoise so much I’ve used it in two rooms. My dining room is deep turquoise and my living room is a pale robins egg blue turquoise. both are accented with red and white. I love how happy my home is. No it’s not cool and trendy, but it’s fun and lovely.
