I never get tired of . . . aqua

I never get tired of aqua, it's the color of the Caribbean ocean, a Tiffany box and a perfect Robin's egg. I just love the turquoise blue Pyrex bowls from the 1950s- I bought one from a tag sale that just made me happy every time I used it, but sadly it broke. Aqua is vintage; it's modern. It's cool and soothing.

Aqua and black just look gorgeous together. Picture from Martha Stewart Living.

Look at this mug from Red Hot Pottery on Etsy- just yummy:

I love the way Jonathan Adler uses it and makes it modern again.

And look how gorgeous it looks with tan linen from Lotta Jansdotter:

It's also lovely with brown (as in amazing photographer Rachel Sadana's bureau, post from Design Sponge). See her site at
