Vacation Colours

I always return from a vacation obsessing about some permutation of aqua blue. The colour of warm weather waters, I suppose. When I returned from a trip to the Cook Islands years back, I painted my entire bedroom swimming pool turquoise, as a friend described it (and not in a flattering way), sewed a new bedspread from a swirly blue pattern (I know, literal interpretation, right?), and put flowy white sheer curtains in the windows, to complement the wicker furniture. That was before I was married, and had bright yellow walls and zebra print throw pillows.

Anyway, my point is, it's probably good that I now have to limit my expressions of aqua to my sartorial choices, because I'm feeling another turquoise phase coming on.
