Turquoise is very popular in home decor, and also happens to be popular with every color I've already featured.
Here we go!
When decorating with turquoise, the key to not making your room seem like a cartoon on the Funnies page of the newspaper is to provide the brain and they eye lots of space to process the color. This designer anchored it with lots of white, only painted the accent wall turquoise, kept the clutter to a minimum, and chose a room with lots of light.

Notice the same concepts here, as well as another common theme: accents with equally vibrant colors in small doses.
Finding a beachy turquoise room is very easy ... the color really lends itself to a fresh, light, coastal feeling. It is the color of the sea, after all.
You don't have to go over-the-top. See how this room is mostly neutrals, with a few well-placed, light turquoise pillows? This space really speaks to me!
Light and white always seem to be the answer to creating calm. Wood tones have a similar effect; they balance out the pop of color in these chairs to give the feeling of a cheerful, fun space.
This photo caught my eye because I noticed the chairs were identical to our Outdoor Ikat Pillow. I never dreamed ikat could be dramatic, but I you have dramatic lighting and accessories, it obviously can be done.

Turquoise and grey are a great pair, aren't they?
