What girl doesn't love this little turquoise box?

Florence Broadhurst wallpaper

Who inspired who? The color for the Tiffany box and the Florence Broadhurst wallpaper look almost identical. I have recently been reading the book: FlorenceBroahurst - Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives. She has quite a few designs in turquoise for her wallpapers that were designed in the 60's & 70's. I like that this color is once again fashionable and is being used in interiors.

Refreshing and Sophisticated: A mix of blue and green, turquoise has a sweet feminine feel while the darker teal shades add lively sophistication. Some shades of turquoise have an old-fashioned 50s and 60s retro feel. Turquoise has the same calming effects as the mixture blue and green it is comprised of .

Culture of Turquoise: This in-between color represents water, thus the names aqua and aquamarine. It's also a valuable and popular mineral often turned into jewelry. Turquoise is closely associated with the Middle East and the American Southwest.
