Teal-For Sophisticated Interiors

Wherever I go, I gravitate towards teal.  It is the colour above all other colours that have me salivating. Of course there are different variations of teal.  I prefer the richest, darkest sort with enough green to show through; almost leaning toward jade.  Teal is the colour of sophistication I think.  When it comes to more the deep blue teals, I like it paired up with green like in this picture below.  I love the deep green velvet sofa next to the metallic teal-blue walls.

I love the colour and sheen of this gorgeous sofa.  The cream rug and furniture tempers the scheme down, making it feel much more calming which also allows the sofa to be seen as a statement piece.

Teal is great paired up with reds and oranges like in this kitchen below.  This colour palette makes the kitchen feel more Mediterranean.  Paint effect walls are starting to make a bit of a comeback.  This is less sophisticated than the other teal rooms, but it still works.

Teal kitchen cupboards–lush!  Looks great with the wood flooring and wicker fruit basket.

Teal and brown is another of my favourite colour combinations.  I experimented with this on Olioboard.  What do you think? Teal doesn’t have to overwhelm a room.  It can be used in small accessories which can easily be changed if you change your mind.

Here we have a photo of an actual brown and teal living-room. I like the over-all effect but I am not so sure about those curtains.

How dramatic is this?!  Such a wow-effect wallpaper works great in a small bathroom.

I had to choose this for my last photo.  This is so me!  Lush velvet, teal curtains and a Chesterton type sofa and willow trees out the window.  I could just see myself reclining with a book and occasionally looking out.
