A Little Bit of Aqua







It seems I am inspired by touches of aqua. Scrolling through my picture files I notice I have lately saved quite a few aqua interiors as inspiration. I thought I would share a few with you.

Oh, sigh! Thanks, Anna ~ my favourite colour, especially with black and/or white. And I love that sofa! And chandelier. And little eensy stool laden with books, and the mirrors, and...and...

Susan Lang said...

Love photo two with the black and white striped sofa... black and aqua make a strong statement together!

It seems this is the new IT color for time being, I have seen it pop up everywhere. I must say, it is always so refreshing, I love turquoise/gold or turquoise/black and white combinations.
Have you seen the blog www.houseofturquoise.com? You should have a look, she collects all things turquoise...beautiful!

Aqua is one of my favorite colors to use in interiors. That last photo is seriously making me consider painting my front door that color...

Kelly said...

I just painted the ceiling in my office aqua. It's such a relaxing color and coordinates so nicely with many other hues. It really could be considered a neutral. Great pictures!

Karena said...

I know I am incorporating some aquas & turquoise into my decor, some of the shades are very soft & soothing; some are very bright.

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Very nice! Aqua is certainly a happy colour!

Kellie Collis said...

The black and white striped lounge is divine on the aqua wall!

Jojo said...

My girlfriend's entire house has touches of aqua and it is wonderful. At no place in the house is there a large piece of color but instead it is in small amounts but does get noticed. Her home always seems "fresh."

The last image of the entryway is stunning!

Helen said...

Denise said...

Wow! I had know idea how pretty aqua would look in just the right amount. Thanks for giving me a new color to adore. :)

samantha hahn said...

oh just stunning Anna!!

Tamerie Shriver said...

I love, love, love the aqua touches. Very beachy and elegant at the same time. And the black and white sofa: very clever the way the box on the cushion is not matched is very cool. I think I'll have to try that on a slipcover one of these days. Thanks for the inspiration!

Blushing hostess said...

I love aqua and turqs as well and the House of Turquoise blog is beautiful - have you seen it yet? I never realized how much subject matter there could be on one color...
Be well, The Hostess

I love the blue on the walls.

bluehydrangea said...

Love it! The aqua door is my favorite.

Sam said...

I think that the color of the front door was an incredible idea. So simple -yet-does so much for the interior. A nice little surprise.

What lovely photos. The colors are so vibrant.

lily-g said...

love this gorgeous post and the touch of aqua, how stunning is the striped couch? I'm glad you had a great time in NZ we are also planning a trip there later in the year, now I cant wait to go xx

kerry said...

I've just returned from the Kips Bay Showhouse in NYC. Bunny Williams did the most amazing room in a similar color!

K @ Blog Goggles said...

I'm always an aqua fan. Love these rooms!

Jules said...

Very cool to have an acqua colour for the front door! All the images are lovely, though. I do like ocean-inspired colours.

I love this colour , am thinking about it for a feature wall in my room the other main colours are white , chocolate and red. Turqoise has such an amazing quality that it can brighten a room so much yet be so calming and soothing in a space at the same time .
I am an interior design student and only recently started reading your blogs after my dad saved the section of the newspaper where your blog was featured a few months ago , I love your style it is so bright and fun yet still manages to be so elegant.
Thank you for your inspiration

Oooh... love the black and white stripe couch!

Beverly said...

Appreciate the aqua as an emerging trend. I would love to see examples of aqua and brown and decorated ceilings, (they sometimes get ignored, don't they?)
