Decor Spotting: Conquer the Color Aqua

Written by Gary

Aqua is one of those colors that is many faceted. Oil paintings containing the color are great. Glass art is even better. When you have a color that has so many hues in one you should take advantage of it.

As you all know I am very bashful and hate to admit things publicly. I am going to let you in on a little known secret though. One day, I painted my entire room dark aqua. I accented with dark mahogany wood and grey. It was like living inside the vagina of a muppet.

Aqua itself is a gorgeous color, and can provide the calm serenity of blue with the vibrance and energy of green. Used wisely, aqua can be a beautiful accent color and create a stunning interior. Used incorrectly, and it can take over your entire home and become a complete eyesore. So how do you tell the difference?

If you use a bold tone of aqua, use it sparingly. Splash the color onto some throw pillows or some accessories surrounded by white. If you use a subdued hue, use it generously. Paint a few walls a pale aqua or get an aqua tufted sofa. The key is balance.

Aqua is one of those colors that is many faceted. Oil paintings containing the color are great. Glass art is even better. When you have a color that has so many hues in one you should take advantage of it.

Accent aqua with either dark colors like black, teak, and dark grey or light colors like white, eggshell, or pale pink. Bold colors like reds, oranges, or purples tend to either swallow the color or conflict with it.

Anyway, I just made all this crap up, but I am a gay guy so you should probably trust me. Now go out there and conquer the color.
