never too much turquoise.


via vintage printable

i saw this fantastic and inspiring image (above) at vintage printable (which i found via design for mankind – thank you, erin!) and then i couldn’t help but notice all the turquoise that kept popping up in the sfgirlbybay flickr pool. so, i thought it might be a fun color study to seek out some more, and share a little bit of design inspiration in the form of that very ‘poppie’ color turquoise blue! thanks very much everyone, for including these inspiring images in the group!


love this antique chair with these modern-looking lockers from foundnowhome.


office & accessories from …jutta… & a cute vintage clock from junkculture.

  18. Brandi says:

    I couldn’t pick a single favorite if I tried. It’s that turquoise. Gets me every time. I’d paint my walls and the stairway and the sky that color if I could, not to overdo it or anything.
