A Touch of Teal

Whether you are counting down the days to summer in the northern hemisphere, or mourning the end of summer in the southern hemisphere you will probably be ready to fantasize about a warm beach resort.  Whether it be a tranquil ocean surrounding the shores of a tropical Island, or a stone in a fine piece of jewelry, Teal or Turquoise is a colour that most people respond to in a positive manner.  Inspired by a blog about an “enchanted house” on the blog site Fun and Fabulous, which had a fantastic happy go lucky door colour.  I have pulled together some inspirational interior images from all things Teal.

The Bedroom

Add a “pop” to a neutral toned bedroom

 Or for those who like it a little bit more dramatic you can team it up with the Pantone colour of the year Tangerine Tango. The Teal and Tangerine Chinoiserie bedroom below is by San Francisco interior designer Kendall Wilkinson who said she designed the room with the idea of a woman who is a jet-setter with a passion for fashion.

Living Room 

A more relaxing space with a cooler palette.
Or a little bit more of the quirky Jonathan Adler Interior below.

The Dining Room

A subtle addition of the teal glass vases in a neutral natural setting, providing an understated talking piece.

Palm Beach Contemporary Dining Room


Or turn back the clock with a little vintage Teal.

However you Teal…. let the colourful journey continue……

      It is amazing how something so small changes the whole area, although with my practical head on I am not sure how long they would last in a real day to day family household situation 😉
