You know I love RED and Blue just by reading my blog.

  But I've been surfing over at Erin's House of Turquoise blog (here) forever and I am falling in LOVE with turquoise.   Aren't these just lovely rooms of turquoise?  I love #1! 

The closest color I have to turquoise is our guest bathroom upstairs where the walls are painted in BM's Emerald Vapor which I have blogged about (here) and (here).

I'm itching to paint my kitchen cabinets ~ I'm so tired of the wooden oak look ~ been there, done that in  all three of my homes.  I thought I could try just painting the kitchen island first in either a blue, blue gray or even turquoise.  If I don't like it I can always re-paint it in white.

Before I tackle that project I have an old wooden office chair that I want to strip and paint.  Start simple..that would really pop in turquoise or white. 

Are you a lover of turquoise?  


Please join Mary at The Little Red House (here) for more Mosaic Monday!

  8. No, I don't love it, but I do like it. I have a table that was painted turquoise by my grandmother. I was going to paint over it, but my daughter had a fit. Your selection of rooms is wonderful and makes a great mosaic.

  9. Turquoise is a colour I too have been thinking about. I'm not sure how I would use it, most likey for some accent pieces. Your collage gives lots of ideas.

  12. Oh most definitely I am a lover of Turquoise, bold Southwestern favored color that it is! My Dad was Native American and it is a color favored by many Tribes and especially in their Artistic creations.

  13. Thank you for this lovely mosaic. I am a turquoise addict and can't wait to paint my dining room/craft room in it, I just haven't found the perfect shade yet. I have just found your blog and can't believe I didn't find it sooner, it's lovely. I will be visiting often. Rachael Xx
