I can safely say that Turquoise is my current favourite color. I don't know, maybe because i was inspired from my recent trip to Krabi Island? When I think about the colour turquoise, I immediately envision myself lounging by the beach, feet buried in the warm sand, sipping a refreshingly cold mango blended juice. The colour's soothing nature reminds me of the cool sea breeze that would so often embrace me whenever I am at the beach.
Turquoise is an easy shade to work indoor. Adding this vibrant hue will instantly make any interior space pop and feels airy and refreshing. Nothing beats the calming, yet unpredictable foamy white waves that seems to be playing peek-a- boo amid the sparkling blue sea which changes shades, reflecting the sky.
Like most of us dreamers who can't afford a luxury villa by the beach yet, why not create a living room that transports us to that atmosphere once you set your foot into your nest? This gave birth to my humble version of Poseidon's realm with a feminine touch. An accurate depiction of the sea can only be done with the shades of the colour cyan, a greenish blue, a mixture of the sky's reflection and the sea algae.
Amongst the shades of cyan, my favourite was turquoise as it is an eye-catching exquisite colour with a complex character, though soothingly simple when used interior designing. The centrepiece would be a white couch with its matching pillows where I can imagine myself to be laying on the sandy beach
when I plop myself on it after a hard day at work.
My feet would brush across the smooth, furry aero blue carpet as I reached for my juice on a shiny marble white diamond-like coffee table. My gaze would then lay upon a beautiful seashell underwater 100% handmade oil painting that complements the interior of a coral-shaped blue-green single-seater, an oblong-shape, antique-looking cabinet of the same colour and ornamental pieces such as seashells, golden, imperfect pots, golden leave and an exotic table lamp, all of which looks like the treasure of the sea after an adventurous voyage.
We are all dreamers aren't we? But with a little imagination, this can all be reality.

If you have been on Pinterest lately, you know that dark painted walls are in. These walls give a dark, dramatic, elegant and luxurious aesthetic to your overall interior design. Most of us prefer a popping or pastel background that is typically intended to make the room look bigger but with the right techniques, you can do the same with a dark tint.
I personally love a dark paint if done right. It requires effort and commitment to completely transform the place. Sure, it’s trendy and you want to remodel your place but you need to keep in mind how risky it can get. Its fun do decide what will go with the dark background. It’s challenging but fun. However, let me assure you that the effort is worth it all. Go for this look if you are honestly ready for it.
It is the best choice if you want to embrace the highlight art. Placing accented colors in front of a dark hued wall upgrades the artistic atmosphere that you try to create. Decorating a dark walled room is no more difficult than decorating any other room. You just need to be extra careful with the furniture you use and the decorative items kept for display. For some, dark hued walls become a great way to display art.
Art fanatics find it easier to exhibit abstract art, pop color art, floral art and oil paintings or any other painting that can enhance the gloomy hue. Establish the overall mood of the room by putting up the right paintings. Oil paintings are an easy way to express what cannot be said. Their colourful nature has the most profound effect upon your observance. Out of the dull gray world, exquisite paintings might be the escape.
Here are the some examples of oil paintings put up on the darkened walls.
Making the art as a statement at the center of the room? The painting really pops up on this dark hue wall. The items and other accessories were added to create a harmony which create a perfect overall look.
