Who doesn’t love ”teal” –that watery mix of blue and green? Somehow, I don’t have even a drop of this color in my closet or home.
In interiors, teal is often used in limited doses as an accent color but can be such a gutsy choice when balanced by complementary reds and oranges.
And here is GUTSY. Designer Rob Southern actually painted over mahogany paneling (gasp!) in this library with a high gloss teal– Benjamin Moore’s Bermuda Turquoise. Light flooring and red accents make it work.
When the talented Kelly Berg of Arte Styling posted this photo of her home office I immediately filed it under “Perfect Teals”. She used Benjamin Moore’s Rendezvous Bay on the walls. Again the orange tone of the floors and furniture bring balance to the space. And take a look at that subtle ceiling color. Perfect, indeed.
I’m dying to try this color- C2 Paint’s Luna . This brand is the master of complex saturated color– they use finely ground artist-grade European colorants to create an unmatchable luminosity and depth.
