    Turquoise, aqua, beachy-blues are my favorites for the last 5 or 6 years now. Question: since this has been such a huge trend lately, do you see it dissipating at all? I repurpose furniture and it seems to be the go to color for most paint overs (aside from shabby chic white).

      Hi Effie – yes I do think that turquoise, aquas and beachy blues will still be favorite colors. In fact, there’s a blog dedicated to the color – appropriately called “Turquoise. If you didn’t know about it, you should look it up. Continue repurposing in turquoise – but also look into doing some whites and off whites and adding blue green elements – like knobs (there are some gorgeous ones). Also, add some stencilling in blue greens and add turquoise one the edges and even in the insets of furniture – just to mix it up a bit! Add some gold leaf or silver leaf to your turquoise items – that would be beautiful!! Thanks so much for commenting!
