Color Crave: Teal

No longer known for its association with 80’s office furniture, teal is big for 2016.  Teal can be tricky, though, falling somewhere between green and blue, but it’s both beautiful and unique.

A dynamic color that makes any furniture or accessory a bold statement piece, pair it well with deep purples, dark wood and grays; don’t be afraid to show it off!

“Tidewater captures the tranquil feel you get from a spa or visiting the beach. In working with a palette of blues, grays, greens and neutrals, Tidewater is perfect in achieving a calm and serene setting. Coral colors also pair well with Tidewater for a more energetic feel in a room.”

“Teal Zeal is wonderfully versatile and can look playful or sophisticated depending on what you pair it with. Mix this bold hue with pops of fuchsia or nectarine orange for a modern look, or combine it with a rich espresso and shades of cream for an elegant interior.”
