This cheerful shade of blue is popping up everywhere, from home decor to clothing and accessories. Turquoise is versatile because it can be bright and bold or calm and soothing.

    I must have been a year ahead. Seems like everything I bought last year was some shade of turquoise. Must mean my wardrobe is set for this year too. Just love this color.
