Japan Design Board & Turquoise Inspiration

So I know it took me absolutely forever,
but I finally wanted to show you my interior
design board for Culture & Design.

My country was Japan!
I liked how it turned out
and I think my colors flowed
very well together.
I love all of the reds, greens,
and yellows!
I received a 100%, yipee!
I love this class...can't wait to create more boards!
So lately turquoise seems 
to be the latest trend
in interior design.
I am personally very excited about this!
I love turquoise, especially because
it reminds me of the ocean...
This picture is from the Caribbean. 
BK might wants to live here someday.
Here's to hoping!!
I am seeking inspiration for my next project.
We can choose one room, theme, 
type of person to design for, and a main color scheme. 
I am thinking turquoise in the Caribbean perhaps
for BK and I someday when we live there.
I'm such a dreamer!! 
I love the ocean of course and turquoise
just happens to be in this year!
Would you do a room in your home or apartment
in turquoise or aqua?

I so would and I am even
considering it for the future!

I am off to see Alice in Wonderland tonight.
I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!

Happy weekend!

  33. Yay congrats on your Japan board!
    ooh and I would LOVE to have a room in turquoise, it'd be such a bold, lovely color to have. Especially if it were in the Carribean.

  34. loving all the greens xxxx

  35. I love turquoise! And those rooms are beautiful :-)

  36. Thanks for your sweet comment! I didn't know you were into design?! I want to hire a designer when I have a house (or the help of a really good friend) but I'm really into the all white, casual luxury, comfort type look. So some of these rooms with a lot of white I liked and I loved that zebra rub. I don't think I would do a room in turquoise but I love pastels and black! xoe

  37. love your design board!!! :) and all your inspirations. have a lovely week beautiful.

  38. I would DEFINITELY do a room in aqua or turquoise! I LOVE the ocean and any inspiration from it I can use in my home, I'd totally dig! I've always wanted a bedroom to look completely beachy.. with whites, sands, blues, *happy sigh* :)

    And I love the your japanese design boards! :)

  39. Really like the idea for your next design project! It can go into you and BK's "dream" folder. Who knows? Someday you just may need that design plan for your new home!

    It's not quite aqua or turquoise, but our master bedroom is a beach theme -- more New England, Cape Cod beach though, rather than Caribbean. It's baby blue like and tan mostly, with shells and such around. Although, we do have a bright canvas painting of a beach in Aruba hanging on the wall! It's probably my favorite room...

  40. Your design board is fantastic - congrats on the 100%! Well deserved :)

    I love turquoise - especially in the first room :)

  41. great job on the board! i totally love turquoise and those pics are so amazing! you always have the best pictures :)

  42. Good job on your project. I just love your style. Hope your week is going good.

  43. I never thought I liked turquoise, but I loved all the photos you posted... so yeah, I guess I would consider turquoise now... especially if I was in the Caribbean :)

  44. Turquoise is actually my favorite color. Aquamarine (which is similar) is March's color/stone and my birthday is March 21st :P

    Love the pictures! I would love to have a turquoise room! We'll see what my future husband thinks :P


Thanks for the comment love! Candy sends you and puppy hello (aka barky bark)!
