And by mild, I mean must-buy-everything-pretty-in-turquoise.
I snatched up several pieces of jewelry, leather bracelets and clothing of various turquoise hues in Italy. I just bought a sea-blue cardigan from Zara and my favorite earrings are also of the same pigment family.
No big deal, right?
I find turquoise - and similar blue shades - very calming, fresh and nice to look at. Especially during summer months when you want to wear something bright, and during winter months when you want to break the grey streak.
It's only five more weeks till we move back to the US of A and I'm already thinking of ways I'll be able to incorporate the teal tint into our home. We'll be in a rent house, so anything I do will either have to be through objects and accessories or "undoable" changes like removeable wall paper. Which I can't wait to try out.
I love this striped one by Sherwin Williams:
Overall, our home has a very Texas country feel to it. We began aquiring our "dream furniture" a few years ago from the Texas Rustic store. All the pieces are a light pine wood and emblazoned with Texas stars. And our couches in the living room, for example, are dark brown leather.
