Choosing House Colors: Turquoise?

January 3, 2012 § 2 Comments

Where on earth can you use turquoise for a house color? Answer: Where you see turquoise from your living room window.

In neighborhoods where rooftops are gray and the days are short, this rich blue-green color on a house sticks out like a bottle of mouthwash. But in the sunny Caribbean environment where the ocean is steps away, there is nothing more beautiful than the hue of the waves washing up on the beach. Splashing that color up on the house makes perfect sense as you want to spread the color around as much as possible. This house in Puerto Rico is a perfect example of how the homeowner chose a paint color from the environment’s luscious palette of blues and greens. Totally refreshing!

    Almost as bad as the lime green house. I think it is quite ugly and out of place.

    Hi again, Clayetta. There were lots of them in the neighborhood, actually. But that doesn’t mean you have to like the color. What I’m trying to do is dissuade people from using these vibrant colors in neighborhoods where they would stick out like even MORE of a sore thumb. In the Caribbean and Florida, Hawaii, Bermuda, and maybe a few more places, the vibrant colors are part of the architectural landscape. Thanks again for your opinion!!
