The Color Combo: Chartreuse and Turquoise

Chartreuse and Turquoise have been making quite a stir lately. The avocado-ish color was quite popular in the 60s, but received negative reviews later... I mean, remember those Avocado fridges and washing machines? Well, now it has been modernized and paired with the beautiful Turquoise and it is fresh, and happy. It's earthy meets pop!
From Jamie+Drake Love the organic, and feminine feel to this room.

The white here is so great against the blues and greens. Very Summer.

Love this rug with the Kartell "Ghost" Chair!

Cute knobs.

From Canadian House and Home. I adore this. I love the wood furniture against the chartreuse, making the turquoise really pop.

How fun is this?! from the rug, to the curtains, to the chandelier. It's happy.


  1. One of my all-time favorite combos!! So fresh and fun! This is such a great collection of images!

  2. Found you through Erin from House of Turquoise on the post of chartreuse and turquoise. Love this combination. We especially love the Jan Showers picture with the lucite legged bench with the hunter green velvet and the cool retro rug. We also thought the last picture, with the great chandelier, rug, chairs and curtain fabrics with the wave banding was unique and fun! Thanks for this post!


So... Tell me... What do you think?
