    Is it my imagination or is Turquoise one of those colors that is terribly hard to photograph? It seems different each time I see it. It especially looks different next to the Azalea vs. next to Cayenne. Here in this photo it reminds me of a blue that has a wee bit more green than Storm, but is closer to the intensity of Storm. In the swatches stuck to my fridge Turquoise seems to be much more vibrant and intense. Of course Azalea is such a vibrant/intense color, maybe it's an eye trick in the photo where the eye can take in only so much so it "sees" one color differently than it really is. . .

    No matter the color, thanks for the photo teasers Darcy. I am so excited about Azalea. A little birdy, Joanne cough, told me a package is coming to bring Azalea tidings and I cannot wait. Your photos are tantalizing me and peeking my imagination to the awesomeness my brown box will contain! I wish I had a thumbs up emoticon. . .

    I agree; the Turquoise looks different in nearly every photo of it—and it doesn't look a lot like the swatch I have of it in this particular picture. In the swatch, the turquoise is a deeper, richer color; much more saturated than it appears in the photo of the two MCBs side by side.

    dorayme, ncb4:

    I do think the Turquoise is somewhat difficult to photograph. It's also going to look different under natural, fluorescent, tungsten, etc. light. Now that I have a swatch in front of me, I've tried correcting the color a little bit.

    Will the Ristrettos be made in azalea/sapphire?

    If yes, when might they become available? Thanks!

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this already...

    Was just browsing accessories and it looks like Azalea is already listed in the pull down menu for the 3D organizer cube and Azalea and Turquoise are listed for the Clear organizer wallet!! No shipping dates for the organizer cube but the wallet will be available in mid October.

    I've finally found an exact match for the Turquoise fabric - the Moleskin Volant notebooks! The darker color (Manganese, I believe) perfectly hides my fabric swatch. BARNES & NOBLE | Moleskine Volant Pocket Ruled Notebook, Manganese/Cerulean Blue Set of 2 by Moleskine
