Try Bright Blue Accents

Caribbean blue in the art, lighting and accessories stands out against the soft neutral and white palette of this transitional kitchen and breakfast room. 

Add Caribbean Blue Statement Lighting

A contemporary globe pendant with a cutout surface gets added interest from the splash of bright, Caribbean blue on its reverse side. Paired with blue chevron window treatments, the accents add interest in this bright white kitchen. 

Add Colorful Cookware

Sometimes all you need to add new color to a space is a few new pots and pans. These bright blue accents are pretty enough to display even when not in use. 

Cool Off the Walls

For a bigger hit of blue, designer Barry Dixon coated all four walls in this cool yet energizing shade.

Add Style With Tile

Bright teal tiles and a modern floating vanity keep this bathroom feeling fresh and fun. A crisp white countertop provides contrast against the rich brown drawers and bright blue walls.

Pair Bright Blue with Crisp White

For a summer-perfect look, pair white furniture and accessories with bright turquoise walls.

Pick Up Water Hues on the Patio

Here, turquoise loungers invoke the colors of the coast. Even if you're landlocked, you can create the same look poolside or yard-side by adding bright water hues to your outdoor furniture.

Opposites Attract

Blue and orange are opposites on the color wheel, making them a perfect pairing. Here, a luxurious, orange freestanding tub stands out against bright turquoise shutters. 

Create Coastal Cottage Style

Spare furnishings and neutral colors keep the feel of this cottage-style bedroom restful and airy. Vibrant turquoise bedding adds a saturated focal point that's still easy on the eyes. 

Go Bold for Kids' Rooms

Pairing turquoise with creamy white and pink creates a modern twist on a classic little girl's room palette. 

Add Caribbean Blue for Midcentury Magic

Turquoise pairs well with warm wood tones, making it a classic in midcentury modern spaces. Here, custom-colored cast concrete adds bright color in the center of the room. Backsplash tiles in a similar turquoise tone create the perfect backdrop for a collection of richly hued ceramics.

Add a Colorful Niche

The custom niche inside the shower of this California guest bathroom is crafted from remnants of the tub deck and recycled-glass countertop. The homeowners love blue, and even their bath products play well with the room's Caribbean color palette.

Of-the-Moment Palette: Turquoise and Deep Purple

This kids' room is anything but juvenille, thanks to the sophisticated palette of deep purple, turquoise and light blue. Layered patterns and fun furnishings mix to form a tranquil bedroom with equal parts whimsy, function and style.

Add an Accent Wall

Not ready to commit to a room full of turquoise? Try it on one wall. Here, the color picks up water hues visible from the floor-to-ceiling windows. 

Try a Pallet Potting Bench

Give your garden tools a colorful upgrade by creating a potting bench made of wooden pallets painted with bright blue paint. Or, create a similar look by adding a bright hue to an existing potting bench or shelf unit. 

Add Jewel Tones

Artwork is just as much the focal point as the mix of furniture styles in this eclectic seating area. Here, a mix of jewel tones, incuding purple, fuchsia and bright blue, create interest over the sofa. 

Pair Blue With Coral for Coastal Color

Coral and Caribbean blue make a great combination for a coastal-inspired space that makes a statement. Here, striped cushions, butterfly wallpaper and Moroccan accents create a fun, eclectic kids' place space. 

Go Bold in Teen Bedrooms

A turquoise wall create a cool backdrop for bold accents, like a yellow chevron rug, woven pink poufs and bright bedding.
