|shades of turquoise|
A few months ago I wrote about color psychology and how color inspires me: I can't imagine a colorless world!
We make color decisions every day:But did you know: turquoise is a universally flattering color! The color of the ocean, turquoise matches all skin and hair colors and appeals to both men and women:
- what color sweater should I wear with these pants
- should my new glasses have brown or red frames
- do I want pink or yellow flowers
- what color should I paint my walls
- does this tie match my shirt
Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise inspires thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a comforting escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of well-being.
While you might think of turquoise as a spring color it can be worn year round, and looks lovely in your home - think pillows, bed linens, eye shadow or nail polish, a vase, new coffee cups: turquoise is everywhere! There are many shades of turquoise, from sky blues to watery blue-greens to deep greens: one will appeal to you!
So is this long winter making you blue? Brighten your days and your spirit by bringing some turquoise into your world!
