In many cultures, Turquoise is believed to be a protective talisman, a color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky. Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that to many people, Turquoise represents an escape, taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting – even if it is only a fantasy.
Whether envisioned as a tranquil ocean surrounding a tropical island or a protective stone warding off evil spirits, Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and interiors. With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum. Turquoise adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, creates a classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens, and is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens.
Turquoise is a color ever present in nature. It is the color of warm tropical waters that we gravitate to in cold winter months, especially if you are from New England! It is the color the conjures up memories of adventure and exotic locales. A perfect wedding inspiration. If you are having a destination wedding or a small town wedding in the backyard barn, turquoise is THE color to compliment your festivities. It is complimentary to so many others because it is found in nature, so let your imagination go and find which combination is right for you.
