Tiffany Blue

This post is inspired by the gorgeous homes featured in a blog I check out regularly--Erin Olson's House of Turquoise. Call it what you want--Tiffany blue, turquoise, aqua, robin's egg blue--it can be a soothing shade that references beach living or a vibrant shade that suits cosmopolitan living. So many of my favorite home accessories over the years have involved a variety of aqua--my headboard doors (above), a lovely lamp that I sold on etsy but nearly kept for myself, throw pillows and a pair of white cotton curtain panels with a turquoise paisley design. Paired with white, aqua can be serene and feminine. Paired with bright colors (like my current favorite--coral), it is re-invented for a new season. Like the little blue box that is synonymous with Tiffany & Co., turquoise is a gift any girl can appreciate.

A few fun etsy finds (clockwise from top left): pair of slipper chairs from Fabulous Mess, octopus pillow from Zen Threads, teal blossoms wall hook from Memory Bean Designs, vintage Russian mechanical alarm clock from Clockwork Universe, vintage linen pillow from Robin's Egg Blue, and vintage sewing machine drawer from Myra Melinda.
