Turquoise is the color of the tranquil ocean that surrounds a tropical island. A combination of blue and green, it has the serene and inviting qualities of blue, yet uplifting and luminous due to the green. In many cultures turquoise is a protective color used to ward off the evil eye. I especially have a liking for the color since my name Firoozeh means Turquoise.

Here are a few spaces that I love using a combination of yellow and turquoise.

The two living rooms bellow have mostly a neutral pallet, turquoise and yellow are added as splashes of color making them electric and not overwhelming, it also keeps the eyes moving through the space.
