Using turquoise in decoration is an excellent way of making a calming soothing environment which is especially helpful if you are suffering from stress. Like green, turquoise is good to use when you are hot or when mental strain has been endured. We associate blue-greens with the homes of people who live in hot climates, and it reminds us of the refreshing cool colour of the ocean. A great colour for bathrooms.
