MONDAY’S PRETTY THINGS :: That’s Why They Call it the Blues

I’m not quite sure what to call this shade of blue-green, other than beautiful. Maybe a combination of ice blue and pale turquoise. I apparently like it paired with neutral shades of white, tan, and light grey — I didn’t even realize that until I saw all these images next to each other!

This is one of those colors I like a lot, but don’t currently have represented anywhere in my home. Can you relate to that with certain colors, too?

INSPIRATION :: Shades of Turquoise Blue: A Small Collection

I’ve been drawn to this color lately. It keeps popping up all over the place, from a corugated iron church in the hills of Scotland to chevron-patterned textiles.
