sneak peek: tempting turquoise

Sneak-Peek-Guest-Post

Anyone else mad about this colour? It’s strongly associated with nature and the sea, a sense of tranquility and serenity. It’s peaceful and calming, yet still vibrant and refreshing. When I think of turquoise, I conjure up thoughts of Turkish glazed tiles, Noordhoek beach with its crystal clear water and my one of my favourite gemstones. The term for this colour stems from the French word for Turkish. So in harmony with all these soothing characteristics for the colour Turquoise, here are some inspiring colour-themed images for my guest post over at Freeworld Design Centre.

showcase: Mikkel Mortensen

I have just spent an inordinate amount of time scrolling through the portfolio of Danish photographer Mikkel Mortensen of Yellows Photography. Not time wasted, but inspiration gained from the clever compositions and unexpected twists in both his commercial and creative work. The beautiful contrast of light & dark, the juxtaposition of hard & soft, and the textural variations make Mikkel’s work thought-provoking and visually intriguing.
