Teal: Kind of Blue, A Little Green, Pretty Great

Teal: Kind of Blue, A Little Green, Pretty Great

I own teal bowls, scarves, plant pots, shoes, blouses, and bedside tables. For one reason or another, what I don't have is a room painted in this, my favorite color.

To me, teal is the perfect moody color with a lot of depth and versatility; the photos above show a darker teal used in a bathroom, a common area, two bedrooms, and kitchen.

I like that teal can skew blue or green, and I prefer it combined with bright white and warm-colored wood. Add some fresh green houseplants, and I am right at home. (Sounds like I need to start painting, huh?)

Are you a fan of teal? Is there a color you find yourself drawn to again and again?
