If your heart sings at the thought of being surrounded by soothing shades of blue and green, teal may just be the colour your home has been waiting for. Whether you love paler peacock shades or a richer jewel-toned hue, versatile teal can adapt to take on a look that is traditional, retro or highly contemporary.

Teal really stands out against bright white, but also makes a statement when paired with cream, navy, pale grey and the natural hues of timber. For a pop of excitement, team teal with orange, coral pinks or even gold. Or, if subtle colour is more your thing, place teal accessories like a statement rug or vibrant cushions against a rich wall colour, such as aubergine or a deep plum.
