Talking Turquoise

With this dreadful grey weather surrounding us it’s time to talk colour and lift our spirits by admiring a touch of turquoise!  At Murray Hurst Interiors we have decided to kick start the year with some appreciation for the effects bright colours can have on us and the impact they can have on an interior scheme.  We’ll be looking at various colours over the coming months and selecting interior images that present these colours superbly.  So let’s talk turquoise!… Like the mineral, turquoise shades range from almost sky blue to deep greenish blues.  You can create feminine appeal with the lighter shades of turquoise whereas the darker teal shades have a somewhat more masculine feel.


Turquoise is a calming shade that is said to aid in concentration. It’s a clean fresh-looking shade that works as well in a living room as in a playroom, however we think it works beautifully in any room in the house if used correctly.  See some of our favourite examples…

  1. I agree, I have always really liked turquoise, it seems to glow and makes one feel happy!
    I particularly like turquoise in a bedroom, when you open your eyes in the morning, it’s the first colour you see. It’s a good start to the day!
