Taking a Risk with Turquoise

I “like” a lot of local shops on Facebook, and I LOVE that many post pictures of their inventory.  A couple of weeks ago, I saw two chairs for sale at the Furniture Zone in Boone, and posted the picture on Squaw Creek’s Facebook wall.  After getting positive feedback from some of you, I tricked my hubby into going to town with me to look at them.
While there, it’s safe to say that he did NOT want to bring the chairs home with us.  But a quick text to my mom revealed that she was just a couple blocks away, so she came over, and pretty soon, we were loading the chairs in the back of the van.

I like turquoise, I really do.  But usually, I like it on a pillow.  Or a throw blanket.  Turquoise upholstered chairs?  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be buying turquoise chairs…

But they’re here, and you know what?  I love them!!!

The style is perfect for our 100+ year old house.

But the color and upholstery are perfect for a young family!

So what do you think?  Should turquoise stick to pillows?  Or is taking a risk with turquoise worth it?
(And just for fun – here are before, during, and current pictures of this room…  We’ve come a long way, baby!)
