Shades of muted turquoise are a great way to freshen up your homes exterior and anything but traditional for outdoor paint colours.

We love these two cool tones with both gray toned stone and  brick, Spirit in the Sky 676 and St.Lucia Teal both by Benjamin Moore.

Teal Tales…

Teal is back, with a big dose of fun and creativity.  

It is a simple blue/green tone, which can be more blue or more green.  Opposite on the colour wheel to a deep orange, no wonder why the two are often used together in a colour scheme.  We also love it paired with a crisp creamy white for a more modern feel.  How do you like your teal?

Teal, cream and brown…what a great classic colour combination.

Colour doesn’t need to be permanent, for a temporary solution why not paint panels in teal and mount them on a wall?

A high-gloss finish is becoming more and more popular, the french have been using it for years and it’s such a dramatic effect.  

For this look try Benjamin Moore’s 2054-30 Venezuelan Sea in Advance High-Gloss.

If you find teal too strong for the whole space, try a grayer version of teal on only one wall.

( HC-160 Knoxville Gray) against a crisp creamy white (try OC-117 Simply White).

Q & A Thursday: Living Room Transformation

Q & A:

How can I transform the living room of my boring beige condo with paint and accessories only? I really liked one of your posts from yesterday that used teal, gold and muted red.

This is my living room, excited for any suggestions.

The Design Styleboard was created by designer Meg Carr-Braint from Joy Studio.

As shown below, Meg suggests the teal paint colour 2052-40 Blue Spa by Benjamin Moore as the wall colour, which will create the primary dose of colour. Then to tie in the main accents, Meg has sourced 3 decor items with a muted red tone. Then for a pop, she found a yellow gold pouf to mix things up.
