There is a real calming and healing effect from this colour which could have to do with it’s relation to the Egyptian gemstone turquoise, which has been known for thousands of years as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune or a talisman.
This is a mentally-relaxing colour. Turquoise has a pacifying effect on the nervous system and brings great relaxation – ideal for sleep problems, and hyper-active children. Connects us to holistic thought, and gives us wisdom and clarity enhancing communication and speech. In holistic medicine the colour turquoise is said to have a calming effect on patients, and is particularly used to treat patients prone to anxiety and panic attacks. Many doctor offices use turquoise and other light tones of blue/green to calm patients by painting the walls in these colours.

This glass subway tile backsplash adds so much character to a kitchen. It’s crisp, clean and timeless. Great for a kitchen overlooking the water front, bringing the blue from the water indoors.
