The trick is in the placement. Use the coolly vibrant shade in small but effective ways — like a teal clock to highlight neutral bed linens or a turquoise table lamp to brighten up an antique hutch. Adding too much of one accent color to a room, though, can wash out the statement factor of the piece.
The best part is that this color plays nice with almost any décor-scape, so adding turquoise to a room's palette is simple. Paired with bright reds and yellows, it takes on a Mediterranean look, while with neutrals it exudes an elegant coastal feel. Either way, it always calms us and our surroundings.
