I loved last week’s post (COLOR) so much I couldn’t let it go. Looking for photos online of all things turquoise I stumbled upon a blog called House of Turquoise. Check it out, but before you go there, here we go again! There should be something for everybody today.


I want this kitchen.

and the York wallpaper shown below. . .

Here’s another remarkable room.




Skona Hems shares this room with us.



Peonies and a book – simple.

Pretty – from another blog called Centsational Girl.

(the seashell is a green turbot)



And here’s a lovely little bauble from my own garden taken 4 or 5 years ago.

This guy I photographed as he strutted his stuff on a Texas farm.

Now  “just for fun!”






And today’s finale:  turquoise Gibson Guitar SG Special!


 Thank you, Pantone, for 2010 Turquoise!

 “Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2010″ Turquoise:



Lucky for me, Pantone LLC declared Pantone 15-5519 Turquoise as the Color of the Year for 2010.

Lucky, because I love the entire blue-green spectrum.

It is flattering to everybody.


Each year Pantone Color Institute®, creates standardized color palettes used in the graphics, design, cosmetics and fashion industries. As per the color experts, the color turquoise evokes a soothing feeling of a tropical paradise, and positive, relaxed energy.





I love it.  I love it.  I love it!
