In any case, orange and I are over. I'm back on the turquoise train. People leave me alone when I wear turquoise. While I rustle up something turquoise to wear, I'm thinking about turquoise non-wearables too:

My bike (which I've been riding again with Hubby, after a five year hiatus) is a gold-y orange colour. Hmmm, I should probably play it safe and get some turquoise tires. I love these turquoise tires.

Although I love turquoise, I don't have a lot of it in the townhouse. I've sprinkled some turquoise around via accessories, the art, one chair. . . but they are little sprinklings. Because our plan has been to live in the townhouse for such a short period (we sell as soon as I am done my PhD), I've tried really hard to keep things neutral because buyers can be distracted even by a homeowner's personal items. Silly, but true. For our next place, though, I have big turquoise plans:
I love the idea of painting just some cabinets turquoise. I'd paint the rest a creamy white or soft grey, although the wood looks nice too - very vintage inspired.
Of course this is up my alley: a bright white space with a few key elements in saturated hues. I was way too scared to pick a statement-making chandelier for fear of turning off prospective buyers, when the time comes. But in our next place I want to go bold on some of the more permanent fixtures, like lighting.
