Turquoise and its diversity
Is it more of a green or rather a blue?
This question is probably as old as the colour itself. But one thing is certain: turquoise is a real eye-catcher in all its nuances. And whether it counts as blue or green, turquoise can be optimally combined with both.
How about a turquoise carpet, for example, combined with beautiful green plants? Or an interplay of different turquoise shades: from bright turquoise to a delicate pastel tone? Or work with contrasting colours: turquoise and yellow make an exciting mix!
Colour turquoise: pure holiday feeling
The colour turquoise is almost enough to make you hear the roar of the sea. The freshness and colourfulness of this striking colour cannot be overlooked. Conjure up your own ocean in your living room with a turquoise rug. Combinations with white and beige are particularly stylish. How about some shells as decoration on the coffee table? An ocean dream come true.
Not all turquoise is the same
As with all colours, turquoise comes in many different shades. Combine a few of them, and they bring each other even more to life. A dark turquoise rug in front of a beige couch with light turquoise cushions on it and a few turquoise decorative elements here and there - doesn't that sound like a true dream home?
Or you can bring the variety of colours together with several rugs. With so-called rug layering, several rugs are laid on top of each other, overlapping. This creates an incredible colour and visual effect.
Stylish in turquoise
No matter what style you prefer, turquoise simply fits. Ethno or boho chic? No problem, turquoise elements harmonise ideally with these cosy and artistic furnishing styles. Warm brown tones, large patterns and a bright turquoise - a true home-living dream.
But even with classic furnishings in black and white, a dark petrol, for example, can become the colour spot par excellence without creating a style break. Turquoise can also be ideally integrated into the country house style, which is characterised by cosiness and closeness to nature. Turquoise in combination with gold, on the other hand, can help to create an oriental look.
Vintage and a touch of turquoise
"Old-fashioned"? If you translate "vintage", it does have this meaning, but there is no question of overly-aged nor broken down. The furniture and decorations are from the 1920s to the 1980s. The objects can be original or new and trimmed to look old. This is called a "used look".
Anyone who thinks that turquoise is too fresh for this "old" style is mistaken. Just imagine an old wing chair in a dark brown shade, placed in front of a petrol-coloured wall, and you'll be convinced. From the most diverse decorative elements to furniture and lamps to wall paintings - the colour integrates harmoniously and either becomes an eye-catcher itself or highlights your vintage pieces. A turquoise vintage rug is perhaps an unexpected, but certainly an incredible highlight in this style that you won't want to do without.
Combine turquoise pure new wool rugs with any room
Bring freshness into any room with turquoise. The combination possibilities of this colour are endless, and the good thing is that it also harmonises with every room. Whether it's an entrance hall, kitchen or dining room, living room, bedroom or children's room - you'll find the perfect shade of turquoise for every room.
