Empress Teal



Color Inspiration continued: When I chose this color my friend tried to stop me and said, "You don't want your house to look like you're in the tropics." My response was, "That's EXACTLY what I want!" As far as my decor goes, I'm a PhD student so I don't have much money. I like mixing Mexican folk art, old family photos, and whatever interesting pieces I can find at local flea markets. Although I did splurge on the couch.

Colors Used: The wall color is Empress Teal by Behr. I was choosing between different shades of teal and I ended up deciding on this one because I felt that if I were a drag queen I would want "Empress Teal" to be my stage name. No joke.

Color Tip: Use color to create spaces that remind you of places you want to be, whether it be your childhood home or a vacation spot. Your home should be your retreat from the world.
