Inspiration Board: Turquoise, Teal, and Aqua

Turquoise, Teal, or Aqua, no matter the name you use, this color remains a popular trend today, in hues from light to dark. When considering aqua decorating ideas for your home, aqua may be best used to create pops of color in your living room, dining room, bedroom, or kitchen. In the kitchen, you could place the wicker chairs around a beautiful neutral colored table under the aqua chandelier, allowing all the pops of color to speak for themselves. Alternatively, we could imagine using some of these pieces in a living room. The airiness of the color provides a soothing sense of calm, all the while, providing beauty. Aqua blues also making a soothing bedroom choice in more muted tones.
