Want to refresh a room quickly with one new accessory?:

The ‘secret’ is the color of the accessory:

turquoise kitchen


turquoise bath


Have you guessed the color is turquoise? I guarantee, your room will look fresh and updated immediately by adding something to the room in this gorgeous, classic color:

turquoise bookshelves


Because turquoise is still such a popular color and will continue to be trending for quite a while, by adding a turquoise vase, throw, or turquoise area rug, it will look like you just went shopping and bought the latest and best accessory in town:

turq and brown


See how nice it looks with brown above? Turquoise is one of the few colors that play well with most all colors including gray and navy blue!

A bold turquoise color is striking and very eye catching:

turquoise chair


I often suggest to clients to purchase something new in turquoise rather than spending money on accessories in the color of the year which will be out of trend soon.

Isn’t that bedroom wonderful? I LOVE it.

Here are a few turquoise accessories that have caught my eye for under $50.00:





turq vase



turq clock


Happy shopping! Have a great weekend everyone! I actually sat out on my porch and read a book for the first time today! #warmweather


  1. I love how this color seemed to make each room “pop” with freshness. Turquoise is such a clean, fresh color. Yellow and a bright kelly green also, to me, seem to liven up a room instantly. Thanks for your advice and for sharing your design perspective through your blog. I love reading it!

  2. I’m painting by basement hale navy and can’t see to decide on a paint color for the basement bathroom. I would appreciate your help. Thanks Kelly.

  3. I am painting my long narrow hall….with landing to basement stairs.the hardwood floors have reddish undertones. Any idea what color to use that is warm.
