Put Turquoise in the Kitchen for the New Year!

One of the major interior design trends for 2012 is the use of turquoise! You will see this greenish-blue hue bordering bedrooms and lighting up living rooms, but it is, shockingly, most prevalent in the kitchen. The mix and matching of turquoise with both complimentary and contrasting colors emits a calm and relaxing sensation that is sometimes necessary in the heat of the kitchen. Here are some great tips to trying turquoise without being too trendy!

My favorite way to incorporate quirky, fun colors into the kitchen is by using them as accent colors. Purchasing turquoise cabinets today may not be such a great idea tomorrow, so you want to steer clear of over indulging. Pairing a light, bright, and fun color like turquoise with dark, light, or white cabinets is a cinch!

Perhaps you have a traditional home with white painted cabinets, and you want to add turquoise into the mix without changing the overall appeal of your room. Adding subtle bursts of turquoise can have a big impact on the general aesthetics. Try purchasing dishes, vases, place settings, or wall decor in a deep, bright shade of turquoise; you can also add accent tiles into your back splash in the desired color. For instance the Oasis door style pairs perfectly with a color such as Waterfall by Benjamin Moore.

If you are looking for a bold, contemporary statement then I would suggest painting your walls in your favorite shade of turquoise. Modern design is all about creating a cohesive contrast; you need to pair light with dark, bright with deep, and neutral with primary colors. You need to fashion a large focal point using turquoise. You may want to paint either the walls or your kitchen table; whatever you choose, selecting the right shade is essential! The Tribecca’s sleek, simple, dark design will work wonders with walls that are painted in Rainwashed by Sherman Williams.

This may be a trend for the upcoming year, but if you follow these guidelines, it can be a style you enjoy for years to come! When dealing with design fads and style alerts simply take the general idea and make it your own, and it will always feel like home!
