Turquoise has really been a crowd favorite lately. And I, for one, am thrilled! I’ve loved this pretty little blue-green color since way before it was a trend. Now, it’s being recognized by the masses for it’s sheer awesomeness. In fact, Sherwin Williams has a version of turquoise they call Reflecting Pool that they’ve included in their 2018 Colormix Forecast. It’s a cross between a light teal and turquoise color that instantly soothes the soul. Now, I can’t wait to get to the fun part. Looking through all the inspiring designs using Reflecting Pool. Are you with me? Let’s go!

A light teal garden stool makes a beautiful accent in this white and beige interior. I absolutely love the wallpaper print in this design!

‘Reflecting Pool’ pairs well with white for bathroom spaces. Add black and metal accents and just a touch of hot pink to really make the look pop.

Oh, how I love white kitchens! The only thing better than a white kitchen is one with turquoise accents. A wood floor adds warmth to balance out the cool tones of this palette.

Here’s the dining room of the same house. Teal accents on the bookshelves and in the area rug tie the whole look together.

If you’d rather a subtle use of this color trend, go with teal accessories combined with a white outfit. So nice!

For starters, let me say how much I love the built-in bookshelves placed against the ceiling. With that said, we can talk about the color palette. The faded turquoise blanket adds a soothing feel. While the red accents add a bold edge to the room.

‘Reflecting Pool’ is the perfect choice for a water-themed painting. Add gold accents to really bring out the cool tones of the teal.

The teal and white combination is always a hit. I love how these two colors come together in this cover up pattern.

I really like how the ‘Reflecting Pool’ color looks in linen fabrics. Pair it with a taupe brown accent for a look something like this.

There’s just no color palette more soothing than a white room with ‘Reflecting Pool’ accents. This color trend looks especially nice on doors.

I like the transparent quality of the ‘Reflecting Pool’ color. Here’s an abstract art piece that plays to this quality. Of course, some gold accents were used. Those two colors are quite the power couple.
