I want to live in Turquoise …

‘I saw these and thought of you’  were the words that accompanied these spine-tinglingly turquoise earrings, popped unexpectedly through my door by a generous and insightful friend.


I have turquoise coasters, turquoise towels, turquoise furniture, turquoise handwash, turquoise vases, turquoise bowls, turquoise notepads, a turquoise desk and, of course, rivers of gorgeous turquoise jewellery – much of it given to me by other fabulous friends.

They know me, my friends. I am like a Turquoise magpie, only instead of shiny things it is sea-coloured things that catch my greedy attention. They know that Turquoise feeds me spiritually and physically. It is something about the mixture of the blues and greens, the reminder of the ocean, its freedom and limitlessness, its baptismal powers.  I feel I can swim and fly in turquoise.

I’m sure I came from Atlantis. Hence, endless photos of the sea, which is a 2 minute walk from where I live … naturally.


I paint in Turquoise – even when the theme has nothing to do with turquoise!

I notice Turquoise wherever I go.

There is no other colour I would rather live in.

Turquoise is my spiritual touchstone.

Do you have a colour you would like to live in?


  1. Thank you so much, Stephanie. Great to meet another Turquoise lover!Aura-Soma is fascinating. I love all the different colour combinations. What a wonderful world to work in 🌈


  2. It’s such a magical colour, isn’t it, the way it isn’t quite blue, isn’t quite green…I love your photos and the notion of the same colour appearing in so many different ways. Opening my eyes to colour!

  3. Lovely post! I think it would be yellow or red. My laptop is red but the case I put it into is yellow and when faced with coloured pens I tend to veer towards yellow but it has to be bright. I just bought myself a pedometer and had a choice of colours and chose red so … but maybe I wanted some red energy to get me moving! I have also been obsessed with that man and his blue sleeve for years so … I know at least two other people who have a really strong connection to turquoise. Mind you having said all that I’ve just noticed the green above and I rather like that too!

  4. Thank you so much, Victoria.
    Yes, colour is emotional – and it has to be just the right shade. Some turquoises are a bit muddy, especially on things like laptops, and so I don’t choose it because I can’t have my favourite colour not singing to me.
    Yellow and red sound powerful choices and a great combination too.
    And as for blue – look where that took you!
    Glad there are others who are turquoise mad too …

  5. I’ll join you in turquoise Francesca; it’s in my bedroom and in my study as well as my wardrobe and other things! Interestingly, my favourite colour used to be purple, so I’m not sure what the change means…

  6. I think you and I were separated at birth, Andrea! I used to have a deep purple wall in my teenage bedroom. Purple is the colour of highest vibration and is therefore considered a spiritual colour – our connection to the divine. I was certainly on a spiritual search at that time in my life. Turquoise is a colour connected with self expression and the voice, which I think would fit right in!
