Turquoise to the rescue

I want spring to arrive, and winter to END!  I’m tired of being cold, I’m tired of everything looking gray, I’m tired of getting up at 6.30am every morning getting Luke ready for school freezing in the dark, and I’m tired of being tired of it! I’m talking so much about the weather lately, my chiropractor said I could have a job as a meteorologist, as I’m giving other patients weather updates off my new iPhone.  Scary…But I’m sure many of you feel the same way.

So I was thinking of things you can do to your home that would pick you up.   And few colors pack a punch like turquoise, and has the ability to lift your mood in an instant.  Maybe it’s because it’s the color of a delicious ocean, and the sky on a sunny day.  Painting the walls this vibrant hue is a sure fire way to beat the February weather blues!

You’ll never feel bored cooking in this kitchen.  Do you have a small kitchen? A bold color can be just what it needs. Love the turquoise knobs.  Sometimes it’s the smallest detail that makes a room.

  1. Turquoise to the rescue…indeed!! Thanks for blogging such a fun post with inspirational photos, during such a long and cold winter. Makes me want to swim in a turquoise ocean. But since I can't do that, I am going to paint my niece's bed frame turquoise, instead of the planned on purple (although I do like purple).

  2. You know what is so crazy?? I am working on a 3 yr old girl's room, and I painted her dresser turq, AND I just sent out her chair to be reupholstered in…PURPLE (Well, lavender). I just posted about the chair! but still. So much like your last pic!

  3. Too funny littleshop…I am going to have to check out your post on the little girls room because that is the age of my niece.
