If your heart sings at the thought of being surrounded by gentle shades of blue and green, teal may just be the colour your home has been waiting for. Whether you love lighter peacock shades or a richer jewel-toned shades, versatile teal can adapt to take on a look that is traditional, retro or highly contemporary.
Teal really stands out against bright white, but also makes a statement whenpaired with cream, navy, light grey and the natural colours of timber. For a burst of excitement, team teal with orange, coral pinks or even gold. Or, if a delicate colour is more your thing, place teal accessories like a statement rug or vibrant cushions against a rich wall colour, such as aubergine or a deep plum.
