Turquoise Inspiration



I've always had a thing for the color turquoise. There's a calm serenity to it, and yet it simultaneously hints at a vibrant and earthy exoticism. It makes me think of warm nights, dancing till dawn, the shimmer of dangly earrings in the moonlight, and the ocean. It can liven up a neutral palette, pair with other jewel tones, or stand on its own. In jewelry form, turquoise is the perfect accessory for everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a little black dress. It's timeless, yet always feels current. It's pretty much the perfect color.

Apparently, I'm not alone with my turquoise obsession. I recently stumbled upon the delightful House of Turquoise and its sister shopping blog Everything Turquoise, and I literally can't pull myself away. I am practically drooling over here.

Any fellow turquoise lovers out there?
