Retro Dreaming

Ever since scoring this new cabinet I have been dreaming of retro furniture... and all of it is some shade of turquoise.



I simply can not get enough of this fruity shade. I painted a feature wall in our bedroom this colour, the prints in our study echo the same thing. I don't think I can stop.

also, i'f you haven't  voted for The Beetle Shack over here, i'd love you to!

Oh and this weeks giveaway ends tomorrow. you don't want to miss it.

  2. I too am a lover of the turquoise. I love it with red and yellow or a dirty chartreuse. What do you know? That'd be your header! All our kids had turquoise walls. I was sure i helped them sleep when they were little!

  8. I have to say, I absolutely love that colour as well. Should've incorporated it into our new home more! Loved that sideboard too. What an amazing find.
