COLOR THEORY: Turquoise
By Lynn Byrne. Since turquoise has been named the Pantone color of the year for interiors and fashion, most bloggers have done their turquoise post. Not me. I waited a bit to see how turquoise was being used.*What I am seeing are images with the YOWSA factor. Turquoise is often paired with some other vibrant color, like orange or hot pink. On the techie, color theory side folks, that is called combining shades with a similar chroma. Throwing in some graphic black and white also is a common thread.
These shots ought to wake you up!

These images are certainly eye catching. But do you think these rooms have longevity? Do tell.

*Note: some of these images were taken before the Pantone announcement but they are included here because they illustrate well the trend that I see.
