Get the look: Teal interiors

Blue shades will always have a place in interior design, with navy, royal and pastel blue all adding a sense of cool tranquillity to a space. On the green end of the blue spectrum, we find teal – deep, rich and almost exotic-looking, with a jewel-like quality at its brightest and a grounding effect at its darkest. Paired with warm metallics like copper and gold, it evokes a regal feel, perfect for a decadent bedroom look. Used sparingly against a neutral palette, it adds depth and interest, and it transcends seasonality with its versatile character.

Because it’s such a punchy shade, teal has been singled out by some of our favourite designers as a signature colour; Matthew Williamson has been using it in both his fashion and interior collections since he burst onto the scene, inspired by the silky elegance of peacock feathers. While his wallpaper designs are influenced by everything from the flora and fauna of Habanera to the Indian vignettes of Zanskar, teal is a common theme throughout.

 

 


'Teal is often associated with opulence, but it can work beautifully in a more pared-back scheme, too – simply choose a matte finish and use modestly.'

Jane Clayton Style Team

Whether you’re looking for an accent colour for your space, or something to adorn every wall with, teal is a wonderful choice for interiors. Consider the size, shape and light level in your room before settling on a shade – and remember that it fits just as well in a modern or minimalist scheme as it does in a traditional space.
