Turquoise has always had a special place in my heart. I’m thrilled to see it popping up in fashion and design and I can’t wait to work it into my own spaces. Sherwin Williams has a beautiful shade of turquoise in their new 2017 Colormix as part of the Unbounded palette. They call it Freshwater and I am in love!

For a restful bedroom retreat, go with an all white room with turquoise bedding. Keep the look interesting with textured brick walls and a beautifully patterned comforter.

If you want a refreshing, beach vibe then ‘Freshwater’ is the way to go. Add it to your design with accent pieces.

This soothing shade of turquoise looks great in an overdyed rug. Just gorgeous!

What better place to use this relaxing color than your bedroom? Consider a white quilt with ‘Freshwater’ accents and maybe a touch of navy.

Or, go with a turquoise and white palette in your kitchen to add a fun, playful touch to your home.

You can also create a more sophisticated look by pairing ‘Freshwater’ with neutral tan colors. It’s still fun but in a more subdued way.

Now, this is really fun. Paint your ceiling with ‘Freshwater’ and balance it with white walls and floors and a touch of dark wood on an accent piece.
