|My go to colors, turquoise and white. They compliment each other well|
Everyone has one. The color where when all else fails you paint it. Or maybe when you see that color on something you think “I need that” No I don’t have room for a 4 ft tall vase but it is my color! Mine is white for painting things. Nice and clean, neutral, a little bit country. And the other is Turquoise, a little bit rock and roll! No, really it is just a pretty color that seems bright and happy to me. Most of my nick naks and what not I have are this color. This is my happy place color. It gives it life, fun, and happy to any space. At least I think.

Sometimes I see a great green something or other and wonder if maybe that is my new go to color. Then the lovely turquoise does something and drags me back into its grasp. I cant quit it! But I cant go crazy with it, this color is a lot. And a few pops is fine. But a whole room would be wayyyyy too much. Which is why my other go to color is white. To balance the lovely, loud turquoise with a softness that only white can give. What is your go to color?

As you can see, I have these colors all over my home. I think in my case I can’t have one without the other. The white gives the home a subtle, quiet calm. And the turquoise gives it life, some fun into the space. If I had just one it would be too much of either. These are my go to colors. It will be tough when and if I want to change them.
