How to Decorate a Bathroom With Navy Blue & Turquoise
Blue and turquoise are an appealing colour combination. (Jupiterimages/ Images)

When paired, navy blue and turquoise bring to mind tropical beaches, crisp clean air and an invitation to linger. Mimic nature's brilliance in a bathroom of any size. Use the darkness of the navy blue to balance the brightness of the turquoise and create a cohesive and inviting powder room or master bath. Add a splash of white or sand colours with plush washcloths or curtains to complete the eye-popping transformation.

    Roll additional towels spa-style by folding them in half lengthwise and then rolling them up. Stack them in a corner by the tub, place them on the vanity, or stuff them in a wicker basket.

    Hang white pleated shades and blue and turquoise sheers over windows in the bathroom. This will provide privacy and a splash of colour without darkening the room.

  6. 6

    Place a navy blue area rug in front of the sinks and tub or shower. See if you can find a blue rug with turquoise accents.

  7. 7

    Hang a fabric shower curtain that features blue and turquoise, or pick a beach-scene plastic shower curtain to set a tropical theme.

  8. 8

    Place a few ceramic or coloured glass accessories on a large vanity or shelf. Consider antique coloured glass in light blue or green to fit the turquoise motif, or pick a combination of navy blue and turquoise items like a soap dish and toothbrush holder.

    Choose artwork that coordinates with your theme. Graphic and colourful images like "Turquoise Sea and Blue Sky Seascape in the Maldives, Indian Ocean" by photographer Frasier Hall, "Bleu II" by painter Joan Miro or "Blue Sam" by Andy Warhol would be appropriate choices.

Tips and warnings

  • Use your own photographs from a tropical vacation or nearby beach to decorate your walls inexpensively.
  • Add seashells and whitewashed wood or wicker to enhance a beach theme.
  • Don't be discouraged if you have coloured tile in your bath that doesn't fit the navy blue and turquoise theme. Incorporate that other colour by adding a touch of it in decorative soaps, artwork or towels.
