What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Summer Color Combo: Turquoise and Lime
Who knows? After summer is over you may decide you like the combination so much you'll commit to a big paint job. More: Inspiration: Creating a Bright Cottage Wake Up With Bright Green Confident Color: When to Use Warm and Cool Hues
Becky Harris added this to Bold Color: Yes You Can!
CapeRace Cultural Adventures has carefully restored and revived a series of cottages in the area that they rent out for authentic cultural experiences.
Bright colors were common in Newfoundland, and Sooley and Nisbet decided to leave the colors their grandmother had chosen wherever possible, and copy others when needed. Many of the doors retain the original paint, and this fresh coat of turquoise is based on what was there when they were children.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Doors Open to Color
If you're feeling adventurous, don't limit yourself to a single color for your doors. Choose a scheme that works for your home and have fun.
Becky Harris added this to 9 Technicolor Interior Doors
Must you use only one color? Absolutely not. Let's look at doors that dip into several cans of paint. Homeowners in Nova Scotia traditionally paint their interiors cheery colors because it gets dar very early in the winter. Doors are a great opportunity to mix in even more color: These yellow and turquoise doors contrast with the robin's egg blue walls and keep the inhabitants' spirits up on cold, dark nights.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Colorful
Style Secret: Analagous ColorsHere's another lesson from the color wheel: Dress a space with analogous colors, which fall next to each other on the spectrum, rather than opposites. That might mean yellows and greens, reds and oranges, blues and purples. This space artfully marries swaths of turquoise, teal, sky and chartreuse into a cohesive whole.Color your world: One secret to the success of the palette shown here is that the rich pigments are cut by bands of crisp white. This imbues the look with a more restful, less rambunctious feel. If you wanted to create a livelier atmosphere, however, you could skip the neutrals and just go all-out with bold hues.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Test-Drive a Touch of Neon
If you want to use bright color in slightly larger applications, consider painting the walls a toned-down shade and your doors in a bright hue. This look is irresistibly fun, and when the trend dies, all you’ll need to repaint are the doors.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Turquoise
Turquoise gets along with its blue and green brothers. This hallway really brings the family together.
