Turquoise Blue Interiors & Coastal Blue Paint Colors to Inspire

Decor Inspiration from Turquoise Blue Interiors: For the Entry

While I do love me some neutral decor inspiration and tranquil-sweet and hushed interiors, I also appreciate the summery peacefulness and beachy goodness turquoise adds. Blue and white are best friends after all, and some blues simply feel more cheerful than others.

Isn’t it fabulous for coastal cottages, beach homes, or any summer-friendly front door?

The front door above is Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue.

Look at how pretty an aqua-turquoise-blue can harmonize with copper or grey:

It truly is a happy color in a variety of settings – isn’t this a cheerful front door as well?

Here’s a paint color suggestion to approach the effect of the curb appealing door above.

Blue-Green Paint Color Ideas for Exteriors

Can you imagine going boldly turquoise on your cottage’s exterior!?!

While it’s tricky to guess the exact paint color since factors such as photography and editing enter into the equation, here’s a pretty turquoise spray paint with a retro coastal chicness you could use to transform something lackluster:

If you love soft European-inspired green like this:

you may be slightly surprised to learn the exact paint color is this: SW Parisian Patina.

The sun can warm a cooler green so that it appears more aqua so it’s important to sample and have a few similar tones to compare.

Turquoise Blue Decor Inspiration: Dining Rooms

Imagine waking up to a cheerful blue hue like this in a breakfast nook:

or even a mix of cool blues and greens like this rustic melange:

Isn’t this elegant combination of putty grey and turqoise magical?

Sometimes just painting bifold doors with a pretty blue (and leaving white contrasting trim like what we see in this dining room below) can bring a smile to an otherwise neutral space.

Turquoise can bring life and interest when you’re after a sanctuary feel. Here’s an example of contrast with black pocket doors and a reflective ceiling.

Here’s another gorgeous blue chalk paint to consider for furniture or home accents:

Beachy Turquoise Decor Inspiration: For Curb Appeal

Chalk paint is certainly not just for dumpster dive treasures. It is a smart option to customize new pieces you may not have considered personalizing. Case in point? To give a new light a verdigris finish, Lesley Stocker created patina in 30 minutes with Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue.

The original finish of this outdoor light when purchased from Horchow several years ago was a dark bronze. #anniesloan #duckeggblue #chalkpaintproject

Cheerful Coastal Blue Kitchens

Can you imagine the task of choosing a beautiful blue to be used as extensively as this:

Something magical happens when those sophisticated chalky blues meet copper:

And even when blue tiles live only on the range backsplash, the effect can be dramatic:

Blue can certainly shift the mood of a kitchen into less fussy, more down to earth territory as we see in this elegant kitchen:

I’m thinkin’ it’s children who eat at this island where fancy upholstered stools would not stand a chance.

Turquoise Decor Inspiration: Living Rooms

A turquoise or teal accent wall is one thing, but how about a soaring one along with the doors and trim?

Maybe a simple custom pillow cover could put the whole scheme into motion:

Cool Blue Inspiration from a Fine Artist

After a diagnosis with chronic illness in the 1990s, fine artist Holly Irwin was forced to leave her career. It was her passion for drawing and painting the human figure that restored her hope and allowed a new life to bloom. Today, Holly and her artist husband have studios in their Roswell, Georgia home.

I think you’ll love the artist’s sense of color and be able to sense an uncommon buoyancy and hidden wholeness within the work. Visit her site and see her work in these galleries if you are able!
