The variety of style directions, where the application of turquoise shades is more than appropriate, is quite large.

European shine of vintage styles: baroque, rococo
French painters Watteau, Fragonard and Boucher, who became legislators of elegant, exquisitely decorated Rococo in European painting, chose the azure-turquoise shade for their pastors' palate. Using the timeless classic combination of "gold on blue" (as Boris Grebenshchikov sang), you can create a mixed interior full of luxury, lightness, sophisticated sensuality. Make the turquoise the basic tone of the walls and ceiling, emphasizing the verticals of space with white columns, wall panels and giant mirrors in the apertures. Use as decor decorative paintings, complex gilt stucco moldings, carved furniture, upholstered in silk or velvet with luxurious patterns, arrange high candelabra with many candles, and you will get your own Versailles.
Celestial turquoise and oriental luxury
Jewels of the "Thousand and One Nights", the magic cave of Aladdin, the treasury of the Indian Maharaja - if you like this design, then insertion of turquoise color in a sparkling decor will come in handy. In the East, turquoise is considered a precious stone of happiness and love, it attracts wealth, does not allow it to crumble dust under the hooves of the golden antelope. Pure green-azure color is able to endow the house with prosperity, mutual understanding, prosperity. In the oriental style this color is not the main one, it is used, combined with other saturated colors, but its brightness is present on details of ornaments, patterns, embroideries, carpets, ceramic and copper utensils, wall murals. Modern variations on the theme of the eastern palaces are decorated according to the same rules.
The glitter of the eyes of the southern beauty, the darkened face of Othello, the ruthless sun of the Egyptian provinces - the Moorish style, singled out by Europeans of the 19th century, absorbed all the bright colors of the eastern world. Terracotta, carmine, emerald, rich blue, dark turquoise intertwine with a weird pattern of wall decorations. Gold and mother-of-pearl compete in inlays on the countertops and doors of dark carved furniture, fragrant censers emit smoke upward, and pointed narrow arches pierce through their tops ceiling arches, which cast openwork light thin forged lamps. Not copying, and unfolding the Moorish style under the modern foreshortening, you can apply some of its details, a special flavor for creating an interesting, unheard interior.
Style fusion ("alloy") - a combination of incongruous
A complex style experiment, organized in such a way that the main room in the room to be decorated can be traced, which can unite all the disparate elements of the decor. Only with this decision will the room in the fusion style become a single whole, a harmonious space, and not a place for dumping dissonant objects. It is here that turquoise is present with large color spots: separate elements of overall furniture are placed in the center, full-size carpets, large monochrome pictures, where the color of the sea wave prevails, and three-dimensional shaped vases serve as a global color decor.
Design, born from sea foam
Mediterranean style - the echo of its Greek version - combines the turquoise color in the interior with white and deeper shades of blue (dark azure, cobalt, indigo).
The main tone is the variants of white, maybe slightly colored with warm sunlight, and turquoise and blue are a reminder of the unspeakably beautiful color of the waters of the Greek seas, which gave the world Aphrodite and numerous resorts.
The color of the sea wave dominating the decor of the house is a reminder of a happy journey, when emotions from the beauty of the huge turquoise space visible from the airplane window and so unusual to the northern view scorched by the radiance of snow fill with anticipation of the long-awaited vacation.
Green-blue can become the second main tone after white for decorating the room using elements of the Greek style.
A wide strip in vertical textile and wall decor, patterned glazed dishes, monophonic pillows, blankets for cozy rest and wall panels "Birds-swallows", as a symbol of Greece - here are some decorating tricks that will help organically embed the Greek style in a modern house.
For each space - its own shade
Thinking about the design of any room in the house, choosing the turquoise color as a "red" thread uniting all the interiors, it is worth considering several design solutions that will help to highlight the preferences of the whole family in order to select the finishing materials and decor with a clear awareness of which the result must be obtained.
A room for a boy or an office
Sea style. It is quite suitable for creating an interior of a male room or a room for a teenage boy. Marine themes will be reflected in the bleached or saturated gamut of wall decoration materials, textile decor of windows, interior details. Use geographic maps with oceanic expanses painted with the right color, a large aquarium where water is glowed with a gentle green and blue, and iridescent air bubbles resemble the silky shine of polished turquoise, fabrics that combine the dark and light shades of the blue palette. Well-chosen upholstery, dark or light wood furniture (according to the age of the owner of the room), several accent details complete the arrangement of the present wardroom.
Children's design in bright colors
Using all the shades of turquoise in the interior of the child's room, combining it with warm beige, sandy, creamy colors is a good way to fill the living space with air, sea spray and sun. Such a color scheme will increase the activity of a small person, bring a positive emotional mood. The deep color used for painting furniture, curtain rails, even the door leaf, supported by lighter, soft textiles, is able to create an atmosphere of happy wakefulness in bright illumination, and muffled by nightlight - to give a quiet sleep.
Room for a girl
Making out the room of a young girl who likes turquoise, dreaming about the island of Bounty, you should find out which of the shades is preferable: saturated or tender? The choice of a light azure-green tone, as the main one, can be beaten with white wooden furniture, flying transparent curtains, glass volumetric vases of simple shapes. Add to the finished room a few bright details (paintings, pillows, thick curtains, made in a more saturated range) can be later, if the tastes change. This does not require significant expenditure.
Any shade of blue is associatively perceived by people as cool and pure. For the bathroom, as a room for daily cleaning procedures, where water is washed away not only by physical dust, but also emotional fatigue, the option with turquoise will do the best. A wide range of sea waves is represented by collections of monophonic wall tiles or mosaics that combine all the richness of the chosen color. Adding accessories (sea, transparent, or copying the texture of the stone) and ceiling lamps using a turquoise analogue as a decorative inset, lovers of the tropical soul will find a space full of fresh air, which every day will give optimism and a good mood to the owners of the house.
Refuse to use in the bathroom monophonic floor tiles of blue tones - the smallest spray of water, when dried, will leave noticeable stains, which will have to be constantly wiped.
Nuances of the drawing room
Turquoise color in the interior of the living room can be present in different versions:
- prevail (in this case, the finishing materials of walls, textile decoration, furniture upholstery, decor accessories are selected, combining different bluish-green hues);
- To be included in the general color palette by small impregnations (it means the presence of celestial azure in the ornamentation of curtain fabrics, wallpaper, furniture inlays, lamps);
- be a local dominant spot.
In the latter case, the dimensional object, which stands out on a general monophonic background, attracts attention, becomes a stressed accent, which makes a strong impression. The bright turquoise chair in the white bedroom, the large sofa of an interesting form of a rich blue-green hue, as the center of the living room, one wall painted in the color of the sea wave, decorated with a contour contrast contrast pattern of large volume, pictures or photographs - these techniques find application in different interior styles. But they are united by color, which plays a significant role in creating a complete interior.
