Hello House of Turquoise Readers! I'm Lauren Liess of Pure Style Home and I'm so excited to be visiting Erin's beautiful blog today. I love coming here to get a good dose of one of my favorite colors. (Seriously, she needs to do a book of the blog!!) Anyway, since I figured there would be no way to round up a turquoise room in cyberspace that Erin hasn't already featured (how does she keep doing it?! ;) I thought I'd share some turquoise rooms I've designed. The picture above is of the little conversation area around the wood-burning stove in our family room. (Below is also in the same room) We painted the walls a fresh aqua (FreshAire Choice's Midwest Springs) to make the space happy & light.


The attice bedroom below features a pale sea-greeny-aqua... The old chair inspired the palatte and the back of the built-ins got a pale coat of paint to match.


The room below was a project I worked on with fellow designer Rebecca Ilginfritz of Acanthus & Acorn for charity. It was a women's shelter we made over. We painted the walls a soft aqua {Behr's Celtic Blue} because of its restful qualities. We knew the mother who lived in the room with her two children would appreciate a calming space.


The living room below is painted in another pale aqua-green-gray paint (Behr's Mountain Haze} and it was paired with soft beiges and golden peaches for an airy yet warm feeling:



And finally, I have a picture of a client's in-progress project. {As you can see, we're still waiting on all of the rugs, accessories, lighting & curtains to be installed but I thought the walls were too perfect not to share!} I love the fresh green-blue contrasted with the orange floral sofa.


I love how different shade of turquoise can make a room feel so many different ways. -fun, tranquil, happy, etc.- Anyway, thanks so much for having me here Erin & I hope you're having an amazing time!!
