Color Scheme: Shades of Blue + Green

Better Homes & Gardens

So I think I've decided on a color scheme for my attic apartment: shades of blue and green.  Think: vibrant turquoise, sky blue, rich teal, lush chartreuse, grass green, and even a tinge of mint.  Also, throw in some gray and cream.  And there you have it.  Turquoise is my favorite color, so that was my inspiration.  And I can't imagine living without all of the bright chartreuse I've been incorporating with red and orange in my current space.  (I just wanna swap out the warm hues for cooler ones!)

So it'll be mostly turquoise and a fresh yellow green.  But I will want a little mint thrown in here and there... or maybe all over the walls?  It still feels a little tricky, but I have confidence that I can pull it off.

Oh yes.  Minty teal curtains.  Turquoise vase.  Chartreuse velvet.

The Lennoxx
Here's a good mixture of the green and a sky-hued blue.

Oh, what a splendid idea to add in a little sunshiny yellow

Decor Pad
Perhaps I'll nix the charcoal in favor of this softer heather shade of gray.

And this is why I love turquoise!  It's simply gorgeous, no?

Etsy
Maybe I'll paint one of my pieces of furniture a pretty shade of this bold mint?

Green and turquoise are a match made in color heaven.

Pink Wallpaper
Love the wallpaper and bedding in this room.  Wish I had a little cat to cozy up my bed!


Raenovate
More subdued here with warm gray, sky blue,
and a deeper shade of green.  Just as lovely.

Desire to Inspire
I like the mix of modern furniture with the antique chandelier here.

I simply must learn how to paint a ceiling like this. 


So what do you think of my color scheme decision?  :)

  5. What is the name of the heather gray in the "gray and green" room? Is it Benjamin Moore?
