I’ve Got the Blues

After getting lots of positive responses from my “Shades of Gray” post a while back, I decided to do a turquoise and robin’s egg blue inspiration board. Turquoise emotes a bright, happy energy, and I’m drawn to it’s ‘cheerful’ disposition, if you will. Whether you use a turquoise accent piece in an all white kitchen, or perhaps as a throw pillow, it makes a warm, inviting statement. A favorite color for summer!

Additionally, robin’s egg blue happens to be one of my favorite chic and of-the-moment nail polish colors for summer – always refreshing, and looks great with a tan. Try it with white jeans on vacation in place of your usual hot pink or coral.

Here are some of my favorite pieces in this color palette. Enjoy:

First row: Neiman’s, Turquoise Mirror, $295; Privileged NYC Turquoise Pendant Necklace, $80; robin’s egg blue floors from my Pinterest board (google images)
2nd row: Lisa Marie Fernandez color block triangle bikini, $345; image via google; Ippolita large turquoise drop earrings, $995; turquoise Doxa lamp (price unknown) via here
3rd row: Nicholas K Spring 2011, image via Refinery29; Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda, $6.99, available in February at drugstores nationwide; Priti NYC in Forget Me Not, $12.50, available at Priti NYC‘; Ippolita rock candy 18-karat gold turquoise ring, $2,800
