{friday finds: guest post from erin of house of turquoise}


We asked Erin if she wouldn’t mind picking out her favorite turquoises from the Hirshfield’s and Ralph Lauren paint lines. Who better than Erin to get you started in the right direction if the color turquoise is in your future. A little or a lot of turquoise, you’ll find gorgeous rooms on her blog, House of Turquoise. Thanks again, Erin.

I’m so excited to be blogging for the Hirshfield’s Color Club! Thanks for allowing me to spread my passion for the best color ever: Turquoise! It’s not just me that loves it; Pantone chose turquoise as the color of the year this year. What better time to head over to my nearest Hirshfield’s and select my favorite shades, especially now that they are carrying Ralph Lauren paint again! I have to say, picking my favorite shades was so tough! I’ll go through my top 6 favorite colors, three from the Hirshfield’s line, and three from Ralph Lauren. What will my number one favorite be?!

In no particular order:

Ralph Lauren Bali Turquoise IB84This lovely shade belongs to Ralph Lauren’s Island Brights collection. Rightly so, the saturated color conjures up feelings of a tropical vacation! I just love the bold, vibrant shade, and how it went with pretty much all of my home decor!

Hirshfield’s Cyan Sky 0681

How pretty is that?! I love this shade because it reminded me of the ocean. The color, especially combined with the cheery yellow, just made me happy!

Ralph Lauren Sunwashed Blue IB82

Another tone from the Island Brights collection, this one reminds me of a beach house out in the Hamptons. I love it because it’s peaceful but also invigorating!

Hirshfield’s Andes Sky 0680

I’ve never been to the Andes, but I’ll pack my bags tonight if its sky looks like this! This aqua shade reminded me of a certain little blue box. A very refreshing, cool color…I think Martha would dig it too!

Ralph Lauren Faded Seafoam VM125

Part of the Vintage Masters collection, this shade seems timeless, definitely a sophisticated shade I’d never get tired of! It’s a color I’d recommend to anyone wanting a pretty turquoise room that’s not overwhelming.

Hirshfield’s Everest 0679

This color gave me a robin’s egg vibe…a perfect shade that’s not too light, not too dark. It’s such a fresh, soothing color. I love it!

Ok now which was my favorite?

Honestly I love them all for different reasons. But if I had to pick a favorite it’d be Hirshfield’s Andes Sky! It’s just the prettiest, most perfect shade!
