Turquoise is the colour of open communication and clarity of thought. Turquoise helps to open the lines of communication between the heart and the spoken word. It presents as a friendly and happy colour. In colour psychology, turquoise controls and heals the emotions creating emotional balance and stability. A combination of blue and a small amount of yellow, it fits in on the colour scale between green and blue. It radiates the peace, calm and tranquillity of blue and the balance and growth of green with the uplifting energy of yellow. This is a colour that recharges our spirits during times of mental stress and tiredness, alleviating feelings of loneliness. You only have to focus on the colour turquoise, whether on a wall or clothing and you feel instant calm and gentle invigoration, ready to face the world again.


Our favourite Turquoise DULUX range:


Dulux Jewelled Creek 1 (30BG16/133), Dulux Liberty Blue 1 (70BG14/243), Dulux Celestial Cloud 3 (50BG44/094)


Variations of the colour turquoise can be used for different purposes.

Aqua is closer to green than blue, aqua is refreshing and uplifting. It is creative and light-hearted, yet strong and individual. We would recommend using a grey based Dulux Celestial Cloud 3 on bathroom walls or as a floor tiling detail.

Dulux Liberty Blue 1 helps to enhance creativity and inspiration but it also calms and balances the mind and the emotions. We would recommend using it for any wall art decoration in your kids’ bedroom.

Dulux Jewelled Creek 1 is a more sophisticated version of turquoise that is close to teal and signifies trustworthiness and reliability. Use darker shades of teal in a master bedroom on walls or furniture. It is a great colour to be used on any dominant pieces in your interior due to its sophisticated qualities.
