Colour of the Moment: Teal

5th September 2017

A rich blend of blue and green, teal is a shade that combines the tropical allure of the ocean with the depth and luminescence of a gemstone. The result is a colour that is at once tranquil and soothing, while working to promote positivity and rejuvenation. This makes teal perfect for creating a spa-like atmosphere in living spaces, bedrooms and bathrooms, where you can relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Pairing teal with warm, natural wood, brick or stone accents and lush green foliage will help to further promote this calming atmosphere, leaving you with an inviting space in which to unwind. When combined with vibrant tangerine, pink or mustard, teal is the ideal backdrop for a retro scheme, producing a smart look with playful undertones. 

Teal is also bold enough to hold its own as an accent colour, and works in all forms, from cushions and artwork to ornaments and feature walls.
