What Houzz contributors are saying:
If you want to start by figuratively sticking your toe in the water, consider a showstopping turquoise chandelier, like the bottle one shown here. As you do that, notice how subtly wonderful the olive-colored walls are as a backdrop.
We think of turquoise as an accent color in a room of whites and creams, so we were surprised by what a statement it can make surrounded by earth tones too. A hint of turquoise through the doorway of the adjoining room could help add a cohesive look if you're looking to blend the tone.
Here's an example of colored milk glass. This turquoise tint is more rare and you can see why: the made-to-look-vintage chandelier really adds pop to the space, making the otherwise traditional environ much more eclectic and unique.
To give us an idea of what she liked, Kim linked us over to this dining room, and said she loved "everything about it." This room combines a Moroccan-style light fixture, warm wood table, leather dining chairs and a dhurrie rug with traditional architecture and built-ins.
Green walls and wood tones dominate this room and create a calming atmosphere, but the accent pieces provide a little eclectic fun. I see orange and yellow, pink in the next room and of course that showstopping turquoise bottle chandelier above.
