HOW DEVINE POND CAME TO BE
When I was asked to create a blue-green for the Devine/Target collection, Field of Dreams, I felt I was in my zone. I grew up with every imaginable shade of aqua and turquoise, reflected in the ocean waters of Puerto Rico. I wanted to give Devine Pond a warm liveability. I didn't want it to feel artificial or dimensional, but rather surreal. This way if you painted a small accent or an entire room it would feel organic — regardless of size.
STROKE OF DESIGN
Artist Notes: " I believe turquoise is trend proof. There is a retro-remix trend that is combining old popular happy colors in a new way. We experienced 1950’s happy turquoise reminding us of simpler times, family. We experienced turquoise with silver in the 70’s. Because of a gray trend, silver is gray, Devine Pond is beautiful with the gray neutrals that are here to stay for a time. It’s cool, fresh, and powerful. Turquoise is associated with good fortune, protection, and great wisdom."
