Turquoise accents in the kitchen

Turquoise accents in the kitchen by My Paradissi

Here's a post theme that would most probably fit better in a few months time; happy turquoise accents lifting up a bright neutral kitchen. I'm a big fan of the light greenish blue shade, usually hoarding about it in posts here in My Paradissi or even more on Grecian Paradise (check pools, beaches, picturesque greek islands and cute cottage windows) and have it registered in my mind as the ultimate summer color. Is it just me who thinks that? Anyway, after bumping on Sandras outstanding solo cabinet the other day (see photo below) I knew I had to do a little research on how this color works in an interior space like the kitchen and share it with you. I was not mistaken, friends; turquoise in the kitchen rocks! It's like a fresh breath of mint, a cool sparkling glass of water, the juiciest green salad you can ever have. And all that you need are a few strategic touches here and there. You don't have to go all the way, thoroughly paint wall to wall nor even change your cabinetry to match the combo. It's more like a cabinet here, a stool or fridge over there, some fancy dinnerware in the preferable shade or a pretty rug. Have a look on the following photos for more inspiration and tell me; is it a color you'd be thrilled to add in your kitchen? Do you have turquoise decoratives or accents in your kitchen already?

  5. Sorry, but as a child of the 40s and 50s turquoise means my mother's kitchen. I can still see the plastic canisters and the wall she painted turquoise!
