i spy: shades of teal.

much like its cool cousin green, deeper darker shades of teal and turquoise are popping up all over the place. it’s a real colorfest out there, people, so you may want to add a dash of your own if you care much about being on trend. i’m not sure i can do it but i know that i certainly admire it from afar. there’s nothing quite like a splash of teal to remind you of far off places — like mexico, morocco or spain. there’s definitely an exotic feel to these rooms, and they’re beckoning me to take a trip.

    I have been gravitating towards adding teal and turquoise into my wardrobe and home recently. Those colors really do remind me of far off places that I have visited or plan to visit!

    Oh my, all of these are so lovely! Wish I had the guts to go with teal! ;p

    Green is just the best colour. The darker, the better. A good start to the day, looking at these.

    Got rustic turquoise painted on two walls at home…can’t get enough of staring at them. as soothing as watching the aquamarine waters…
