turquoise love







this is an excerpt from an article about the meaning behind colour preference i thought you might find interesting. 
using and avoiding certain colours is a way of self-expression; it sheds light on our personality.

turquoise:

healing properties: increases intuition and sensitivity. Works disinfecting and antiseptic. tones the general system. builds the skin. Relaxes sensations of stress.

preference for turquoise: just like the wide turquoise sea you don't want to feel restricted and you don't immediately bring to the surface what goes on in you; emotions can remain hidden. a color for non-triviality, renewal, innovation and inventions, progressive technics, alternative ways of living together, humanity.



what's your colour preference?

  5. Blue and white is unbeatable therapy. Mine would have to be turquoise too. I was married in it and it just goes on and on in my life.

    Your blue and whites are so pretty today.

    Wishing you a lovely week.

  29. Hello Missy?

    Am starting to adore turqouise. I even changed the wallpaper in our bedroom from white to TURQOUISE!

    I do drool seeing you photos in your blog. Sea, sun and sand? What can you ask for more?

    Hope you're having a great pre-summer now.
