Decorating with turquoise can provide the perfect pop of color for your space without requiring a ton of effort. Turquoise works in large and small quantities, so you can choose to dip your toes into the color or go all out.
If you’re going for a modern luxe vibe, embrace the color in expensive-looking materials like a velvet sofa or curtains. Then add pieces like a console table in an exotic wood and some bright throw pillows in hot pink or orange. Make a bold statement in your space and use turquoise to do it.
If you’re going for more of a farmhouse-type look, you can use turquoise in smaller doses. Create a space that is mostly neutrals (cream is perfect) and throw in pops of turquoise. For instance, a rustic turquoise sideboard will be a nice focal point in a living or dining room. Steer clear of overtly modern pieces and look for ones that are shabby chic in style. This will ensure that everything you pick is in keeping with that farmhouse vibe that you are wanting. Try shopping at a local antique mall or try your own hand at painting a shabby chic masterpiece.
Turquoise also works quite well in a mid-century modern design. For this one, use lots of warm wood tones and try pairing it with grey and mustard yellow accents.
