Decorate with small turquoise accessories for a big kick in your decor

Turquoise is such a beautiful and powerful color. It’s a very interesting shade, the result of combining green and blue but it doesn’t really share much with those colors. It has a strong character and, if used properly, it can completely change the way your home looks like. You don’t have to redecorate your home and turn it all turquoise. A small accessory placed in a strategic space can have a great impact.

For example, this lovely dining area is part of a spacious open floor plan. The whole room is defined by simplicity and neutral colors. The décor is very light and serene. The small decorative planter placed on the dining table features a b old and vibrant shade of turquoise and it instantly becomes the focal point for the entire space.

Here’s another example of a very simple dining room. This time it has a traditional décor. Nevertheless, the overall look is still simple, neutral and light, with the exception of the chandelier, of course. Strategically placed above the dining table, this turquoise chandelier redirects all the attention towards this area.

In order for a bold turquoise accessory to stand out, the rest of the décor doesn’t necessarily need to be simple and light. For example, living room features furniture with a rich dark stain, warm vanilla walls and all sorts of subtle and elegant accent details featuring these colors. The turquoise accessories are just a way of creating a subtle contrast of colors.

In the bedroom, those very bold and vibrant shades of turquoise can be a little too powerful. As a result, you should consider using a softer shade, maybe slightly darker. These beautiful turquoise pillows are just what the bedroom needed to feel complete.

In order to obtain a dynamic and vibrant décor you don’t necessarily need too many colors. For example, this living room has a very limited color palette composed of the white and brown combination and with a bold turquoise accent in the form of artwork, decorative pillows and small decorations.

You can also have two or more accent colors. The key is to know how to balance them out and how to each one stand out without overpowering the other. This traditional living room features both pink and turquoise accents and they each have their own way of standing out.
