An OBSESSION with Yellow & Turquoise (and pops of orange)

v. ob·sessedob·sess·ingob·sess·es
To have the mind excessively preoccupied with a single emotion or topic

You know when you've been looking at something for so long that when you go to bed and close your eyes it's all you can see under your eyelids?  That used to happen to me when I would spend my late nights playing online word games (geek I know but had to beat those high scores!).  Now when I close my eyes at night I get flashes of: yellow door. teal wall. yellow stripes. teal stripes. yellow flowers. teal shelves. rugs. curtains. yellow. teal. turquoise. yellow. white. grey. sofa. wallpaper. teal. turquoise. shot of orange. stripes. teal. PLEASE CAN I GO TO SLEEP ALREADY?!
That's when I know I've become obsessed with something.  No matter how hard I try to think about other things (chocolate, babies, the colour red) I cannot get rid of it.
Anyway, I hope my home and current big project 'My kind of home' starts to come together with hints of this style and colour soon! Enjoy x

  1. Wow, what a bevy of beautiful shots! I've always loved turquoise and magenta, and more recently I've started adding bright yellow to the mix - gorgeous! I particularly love the yellow chairs in the 2nd photo and the chair and wallpaper in the 11th photo. Also a huge fan of Designers Guild, so definitely want the sofa in the 1st pic. Hope you sleep well tonight. xxx

  2. Yes my favourite colour is teal/turquoise. And it works so well with red, orange or yellow! Beautiful photos :)

  3. Omg I love those colours too! And howthey pop! Still adore my grad flowers!

  4. I always thought turquoise only goes well with coffee brown. Thanks to you Christall, now I know it goes with orange too (my fav colour)... Oh, I am going to have so much fun playing with colours in my new Sweden home

  5. Glad to have inspired! I certainly have been inspired by these fabulous images. Yes Vic, the ones you love are my faves as well, and I absolutely ADORE the sheer curtains in the top pic, and the gorgeous quilts that pop up every now and then. My house project is getting bigger and bigger as I become more inspired - oh dear!
