25 Turquoise Designs I Love


Sometimes I am the world’s laziest writer. I’ll flat-out drop a post idea if it hovers around a word, phrase or topic that constantly trips me up. For example, turquoise. I don’t think I’ve ever spelled that word correctly without having spell-check or that dreaded dotted red line point out that I’m reversing the ‘o’ and ‘u’. But I was so inspired by Amy’s Best Of: Turquoise yesterday that I decided to get over my stupid spelling hangups and embrace this seriously gorgeous color. For some reason, I don’t own a single piece of turquoise-colored anything in my home, but that might have to change if I can get my hands on that string chair above. It’s like the furniture version of a summer pool. I’ve chosen a range of blue/greens that dip into the teal/aqua territory a little, but the overall feel stays true to that gorgeous clear blue of turquoise. I hope you enjoy them. xo, grace

  1. Love some of your finds! We’re inspired by turquoise lately, too and also featured the Acapulco Chair in our round up yesterday– great minds think alike! ;-) Oh and I’m obsessed with that Le Creuset dutch oven.. we have a red one and I secretly want to try to destroy it so that I can replace it with the turquoise one.

  2. I love turquoise for home decor. It’s such a nice change from more traditional blues.

    My absolutely fav color ever. Turquoise was such a cool accent in my modern grandmother’s home design scheme – from her Le Creuset pots and pans and gorgeous Fraser Sheba china pattern to her wool boucle living room chairs, Gram used it everywhere (and so do I). This color changes personality depending on what it is paired with: With orange and white, it’s summery and fresh; with navy and tan, it’s classic; against the medium-wood tones of teak, it’s warm and homey. Thank you for posting about this versatile color // passionate about turquoise!

  4. LOVE this! turquoise is my favourite colour. i particularly love that chair too, and that lamp in the first image is rather lovely!

  5. I agree that chair is amazing. Loving the Le Creuset too. My mom’s Le Creseut is the burnt orange color, love that as well.

  6. one of my favorite colors. the flowerplant lamp is gorgeous!

    I have been coveting those turquoise tealight holders (BHLDN sells them too) for ages!

  10. Turquoise is my favourite colour, I love all the different shades. You’ve found a gorgeous collection but I think my favourites are the Acapulco Chair and the Le Creuset pot.

  11. Catherine says:

    LOVE! all are gorgeous and all also fall into the entire nail polish color range I have (for toenails because I live in PHX where flip flops are a year-round wearable).

  12. Alicia says:

    This post makes me want to break out the spray paint and update some of my paintable items around the house!

  13. I love turquoise! There are so many things listed here that I would absolutely love forever.

  14. I looooove the wallpaper, and that bar cart, I’ve been trying to find one lately, maybe I’ll just get a vintage one and paint it turquoise : )

  15. Just gorgeous!!!!! LOVE the fu dog lamps.

  16. Turquoise is both versatile and timeless. I am a potter, and I often suggest turquoise for gift giving because:
    *Turquoise complements the softness of pastels.
    * Pair turquoise with black and white for an art deco feel.
    * Combine turquoise with gray, silver, terracotta, or brown for a Southwestern flavor.
    * Mingle turquoise with orange and yellow for a contemporary feel.
    There’s something for everyone in turquoise! Great accent pieces in your collection!

    Can’t live without turquoise! I found gorgeous glass knobs in turquoise at Look in the Attic & Company, great for any type of bath or kitchen cabinet!

  18. I’m digging the Foo Dogs the most. I think a lot of other people are digging turquoise this season. I work at Hobby Lobby and we can’t keep turquoise paint on the shelves!

  19. Barbara says:

    Love Amy and your turquoise posts Grace! I, like you don’t have anything turquoise in my home yet. But you have inspired me to paint my chest of drawers, thanks!

  20. I love the colour turquoise, but I think it really comes into its own when it’s combined with another vibrant colour – for example I absolutely adore it twinned with a deep purple and (don’t grimace) I think it works well with sunshine yellow.

  21. Eva says:

    I am loving turquoise as well! Any ides where I can find a glass turquoise lamp. Would love to have it in my all white bedroom. I live in Europe, and it so hard to find anyone who ship to over here. Grateful for any tips!

  22. Reece says:

    Wow, what lovely turquoise items. No. 8, the Acapulco Chair is stunning! Great article – thank you!

  23. What a wonderful collection. The color of turquoise is the most refreshing summer color.
    It lifts up your spirit while cooking or relaxing
