{lusting: orange & turquoise}

Ever since I've begun hunting down turquoise ornaments to go with my copper and orange themed Christmas tree, I've had nothing but turquoise and orange on the brain!! What a lovely palette, and so today I thought I'd share a couple of rooms sporting this color combo that I am truly lusting over.

I first spotted this bedroom by Lee Ann Thornton on my lovely friend Hallie's fabulous blog The Glam Lamb, and I couldn't get it out of my head! Warning: these images may cause you to drool a little on your keyboard :)



The space below was designed by Tobi Fairley, and her use of these bold colors is just spot on! I love all the gorgeous accessories.





Such a lovely palette! Maybe a little unconventional for a tree, but I think I can make it work :) Now back to hunting for those turquoise ornaments ... Happy mid-week friends!

I laughed when I read your post! Are we both on the turquoise wavelength? I am not a huge fan of orange but I do love turquoise and I have to say I am being won over with the turquoise and orange combo. Great photos and I can't wait to see your christmas decor.

I think your unconventional tree is going to look fantastic! Can't wait to see it :-)

I just saw a really pretty turquoise & orange room recently.... can't remember where, but if I come across it again, I'll let you know.

Love the headboard, night table, and sunburst mirror in the first room you posted. So pretty :-)

Nancy, I got no further than the 2 first images. Wow. How unique. How refreshing.

I am so saving the second image. Feels like a save something in my inspiration folder every time I visit.

Love to you,

Hi Nancy - Tobi Fairley's beautiful combination of turquoise and orange was the inspiration for my Christmas decor as well - soooo beautiful.
You can see the beginning of my ornament decor in my post here: http://sherricassaradesigns.blogspot.com/2010/11/multitasking.html. I should be posting some of the finished packages tomorrow. I knew I had to use turquoise this year (bought too much turquoise ribbon in January!) but it was as I was walking around the design center and images of these gorgeous rooms by Tobi popped into my head that I had that 'Aha' moment to add the orange. I will look forward to see what you end up with! xo Sherri

Everything goes with turquoise! I can't think of a color not appropriate and orange brings energy to a quiet soothing hue. Hope you'll show us your tree when ready. Ciao.
