Color Design Idea: Turquoise Accents
No matter the region or climate, turquoise is a vivacious hue to use in the home.
A MINIMALIST POP ART LIVING ROOM IN THE HOUSTON HEIGHTS Vintage furniture like a turquoise curved sofa with an exposed wooden base, pair of mid-century polished stone-topped side tables from Houston's Reeves Antiques, and a sturdy wooden Pringle-chipped chair gather around the center, while a layered birch Pop Art wall piece by Mitch McGee gives the all-white living room a little more punch.

The budget was nearly as tight as the space in this cheerful renovation of a 516-square-foot flat in Bratislava. The centerpiece of Lukáš Kordík’s new kitchen is the cabinetry surrounding the sink, a feat he managed by altering the facing and pulls of an off-the-rack Ikea system. The laminate offers a good punch of blue, and in modernist fashion, Kordík forwent door handles in favor of cutouts. “I wanted the kitchen to be one simple block of color without any additional design,” he says.
