Imagining the crystal clear waters in the Florida Keys has never been easier. Surround yourself with sights of the Emerald Coast without leaving your bedroom. "The name is a bit of a misnomer! This is a sprightly, clear turquoise of medium intensity. It's a deeper hue than popular Palladian Blue (also by Benjamin Moore), so it stands up to intense light, without ever looking shrill." — Robin Henry of Robin Henry Studio in New York, New York.
