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!
