Did you know that turquoise is the "in" color for the year? I've been wanting something in my house that color ever since I received the news from my friend Lisa.

Since Monday was a holiday and the weather was absolutely fabulous, I went outside and while the children did this:

I planned to change this:


To this:

FUN! (Actually, this picture makes it look more baby blue, which it is not.)

The color I used was Laura Ashley Home Cyan color. At Lowe's they used the Laura Ashley color but Valspar paint as it is less expensive but still really good (and I only needed a quart). I actually matched my purse to the color as I love my BCBG turquoise purse.

It looks so good in my yellow bathroom with a couple pictures that have turquoise within the paintings. Now to find some fun towels. I saw that Amy Butler towels are at Bed, Bath and Beyond. They are not at our store but online. I might need to splurge.

What needs a little "in" color at your home?


  1. NICE, I love a pop of color! Where did you put this bench?

  2. I love it! Can't wait to visit and use your bathroom!
    I love your BCBG purse, so I'm sure it looks fabulous!
