The Colors of Turkey

I continue to be inspired by my recent trip to Turkey.  I already shared pictures of the amazing tiles, but this time I am sharing the colors - it is such a vivid place with many palettes.  While Istanbul is vivid and energizing, I also spent some time in Cappadoccia, in the eastern Anatolian region.  Here the palette is subtle, sandy and accented with blue skies. 
Enjoy the colors of Turkey!
