Turquoise or Teal?

I do so much design with different shades of blue, and most of the time it’s in the turquoise family, I never knew until I started designing how many different shades of light blue there are (and actually don’t even get me started on light blue, you’ve got Tiffany blue, light blue, French blue, I could go on!). But I use a lot of turquoise, people love it, and I’ve really gotten to be an expert at which shades are which. Turquoise has more green, aqua has more of a teal tone, and teal is actually green and blue together (think peacock!). So I was really happy when I ran across these wonderful turquoise inspiration shots on Pinterest, read and enjoy! And what’s YOUR favorite shade of blue?
