Spot-on turquoise - Hi, I live in Australia and recently bought a house. This colour in this Newfoundland house kitchen is preciesely what I have been looking for over the past 2 months! It is beautifully fresh and bold. I love it. Can you please tell what the colour is called and especially, what the colour code is? I tried Benjamin Moore's Mexicali turquoise, but we can't get it here. I hope you can help. Thanks. EMD

Lily Gahagan added this to Get Inspired by Gingham
A tablecloth in flowering dogwood-yellow perks up the dining table in as little time as it takes to unfold it.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Easy Ways to Summer-ize Your Home
Gingham is a perky pattern that instantly brings afternoon picnics in the park and paper tablecloths at weekend barbecues to mind. Chosen in an unexpected color (rather than the more traditional red and white), it becomes a perfect way to bring summer into your home. This pale yellow would also be adorable used for cushion covers.
Becky Harris added this to Bold Color: Yes You Can!
1. It gets dark very early on winter nights in Newfoundland, so people fight off the blues with, well, really bright blues all over the interior.
Because Newfoundland was an English outport until 1949, most homes have a picture of the queen, a tradition that Sooley and Nisbet have carried on in all of their homes. "It can take about 3-5 years to collect the appropriate furniture and fully outfit the house," Sooley says. Because this home was passed down in their family, the tables, chairs, pictures, dressers and the hutch are original to this house.
Becky Harris added this to Sample Bright Color in the Kitchen
Try it out: In Newfoundland, Canada, winters are long, and it gets dark very early; bright turquoise paint in the kitchen is an antidote to the winter blues.
Lisa Frederick added this to Color Breezes Into Cottage Style
The approach: cottagey furnishings. Despite its bright turquoise walls, this breakfast area reads unmistakably as cottage, thanks to the spindle-back chairs, gingham tablecloth, painted wood floors and old-fashioned sideboard. The trappings are stylistically strong enough to stand up to the unconventional color.
Oversize yellow gingham and two shades of turquoise — think of the water gradually darkening as it deepens — brighten this cottage-style breakfast area.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Turquoise Dreams and Beachy Things
Bright turquoise paint in a kitchen guarantees that winter blues will be banished. Mixing it with yellow and white increases the warm, sunny feel.See more of this cottage
