Trendy Turquoise

As close as Amarillo is to New Mexico and the rest of the Southwest, turquoise has never really gone out of style. But in recent years, the blue-green color seems to have undergone a renaissance unrelated to the silver jewelry trends of Santa Fe. Drive through the Wolflin and Olsen neighborhoods and count how many front doors are painted a turquoise hue, with matching planters on the porch. The serene color can be found inside the home as well, from kitchen islands and cabinetry to pieces of individual decor. Whether going for a rustic Southwest look or calling to mind seaside tranquility, this color is everywhere. Here are a few of our favorite turquoise-toned home accessories.
