Great Home Trends for Spring - Part II

{This is part 2 of the Great Home Trends for Spring series. If you'd like to check part 1, click here!}

Spring is here! In these series, we're talking about inspiring home trends for this beautiful season. Our next trend is as cool as can be.

2. Turquoise and White

You know you can't go wrong with The Color of The Year (aka Turquoise) and an all-time favorite, such as white. This combo is a design blast, just check these images. For an easy makeover, try painting just a stripe around the room instead of the whole wall (or room). Then play around with various elements around the place, such as the pillows.

Here's another inspiring picture. This room looks so clean and classic, yet contemporary. I love the pattern on the wall. You could recreate that look with wallpaper or stencil painting.

Turquoise and navy blue seem like a hit to me. Very coastal and soothing. The map wall is so ingenious and the pillows are gorgeous. The chair? Stunning.

Of course I preselected perfect items for this look:

Patchwork prints via Polyvore

Target turquoise dinnerware
Decorative birdcages via Polyvore
Ikea's Spöka night light

Walmart turquoise pillow
(isn't it cute?)

Zara Home's tealight trista

Zara Home's turquoise wine cup

I'm telling you, I can't get enough of this color. It's so fresh and soothing and modern! I really love it.

What about you? Which one is your favorite so far? Of course, one could try and mix both trends into one. Imagine white and turquoise flowers here and there? Fabulous!

If you'd like to read trend number 1, here ya' go!

See you tomorrow!
