I am excited to see that one of my favourite colours – Turquoise is making a comeback. I love it because this special combination of blue and green reminds me of the beauty of the Ocean.Turquoise is known for it’s invigorating, cooling and calming qualities. It is also fun and uplifting, youthful and sporty. It enhances communication and creativity and is a great stress reliever. Here are some areas we can expect to see more turquoise in 2018.

Expect to see the turquoise trend continue through to 2020 when Avatar 2 will be released.Initially expected to launch Christmas 2018, the release date has been pushed back to 2020 as director James Cameron is planning on filming the sequels 3, 4 and 5 together.

Hope you have an inspirational week.
