Turquoise Dream

Our guest design expert, Beth Armijo of Armijo Design Group, picks her favorite home pieces for autumn.


Bubble Up “This fixture is so organic and unexpected, particularly with the asymmetry of the hand-blown glass balls. I’d have no problem putting this in a traditional or a modern house.” Oly Muriel Chandelier, $2,125, Town Studio, 601 S. Broadway, Suite A, 303-282-8696,


Let There Be Light “A colorful, ceramic lamp can change the whole dynamic of a room without you totally redecorating.” Costa Lamp in Dark Turquoise with Paper Shade, $416, Bungalow 5,

Making Scents “This beautiful, blown-glass votive is perfect for your bedside table, or place it on a tray to make a nice vignette in your entryway.” Lafco Candle in Den/Redwood, $50, multiple locations,

Pull It Off “Use these pulls to jazz up any piece of furniture, or use them as interesting hooks for your jewelry—just drill into the wall of your bedroom or bathroom.” Cloisonne Chrysanthemum Pull, $10, Anthropologie,

Fully Padded “The leather makes this versatile piece very durable for families. I recommend getting two and placing them next to any sitting vignette in your house. They’re even great for nurseries.” Turquoise Moroccan Leather Pouf, $450, Serena & Lily,

Sit Tight “It’s so comfortable, but also so glamorous. I’d use them as side chairs at a dining table, or maybe as a vanity chair in a master bathroom.” Kravet Athens Chair, starting at $2,100, Kravet/Lee Jofa, 595 S. Broadway, Suite 101E, 303-733-1891,


Solid Gold “This cotton-velvet fabric is graphically interesting enough to carry a whole room on just an accent pillow.” Harlequin Fabric in Pasha Gold and Turquoise, available to trade only, call for prices, John Brooks, 601 S. Broadway, Suite L, 303-698-9977,
