Dulux recently announced Teal as their Colour of The Year for 2014. It’s a hue that agrees with me a good deal more than Radiant Orchid – Pantone’s colour of choice for 2014 – and also fits seamlessly alongside Benjamin Moore’s 2014 Colour of The Year, A Breath of Fresh Air. Teal combines the natural harmony of green with the tranquility of blue to create a rich yet balanced hue. Although strong, teal works really well when paired with other shades of blue or green. For example, a flash of electric blue or an indulgent splash of emerald green can work as stylish accents to a teal base palette. Plus, there are stacks of stylish teal buys on the market right now; I’ve rounded up some of my favourites to give you ideas of how to invite more teal into your home whether you’re looking to redecorate or simply welcome a new vase to your living room. What do you like about teal, and have you ever decorated with it? Which of the market picks are catching your eye? P.S. While we’re talking Dulux, I’ve just discovered that I’ve been nominated in the Colour Ambassador category for the 2014 Dulux Colour Awards. What an honour!
