Sometimes I am the world’s laziest writer. I’ll flat-out drop a post idea if it hovers around a word, phrase or topic that constantly trips me up. For example, turquoise. I don’t think I’ve ever spelled that word correctly without having spell-check or that dreaded dotted red line point out that I’m reversing the ‘o’ and ‘u’. But I was so inspired  yesterday that I decided to get over my stupid spelling hangups and embrace this seriously gorgeous color. For some reason, I don’t own a single piece of turquoise-colored anything in my home... except for a few splashes of this gorgeous colour on our pillows in the living room couch, but that might have to change if I can get my hands on that string chair above. It’s like the furniture version of a summer pool. I’ve chosen a range of blue/greens that dip into the teal/aqua territory a little, but the overall feel stays true to that gorgeous clear blue of turquoise. I hope you enjoy them. 
Shopping sources and many, many more turquoise designs continue after the jump…
