It’s not hard to use bright colours in a traditional space. Use a pillow or piece of furniture for inspiration. The contrast of the green/blue against the heat of the coral under-toned orange; really create a fresh summer look. You can then leave the walls a nice calming neutral, especially in the cream family.
For this look try:
1. HC-138 “Covington Blue” by Benjamin Moore.
2. 2170-30 “Autumn Cover” by Benjamin Moore.
3. OC-10 “White Sand” by Benjamin Moore.
Graham & Brown’s Colour Of The Year 2019 is a rich teal Tiru. This colour was chosen from their Tori Teal Wallpaper.
In Eastern Art, birds are also an important and popular form of imagery and symbolism, signifying longevity, luck and love.
Tori depicts an exquisite Chinoiserie bird trail, delicately hand painted and worked into a fine silk texture. Produced in a deep regal teal on a luxurious fibrous textured Oriental paper with a subtle glistening.
Tori celebrates tranquility, good luck and longevity!

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).
Adore Mag- Benjamin Moore North 2053-40 Sea Green Peacock blue teal walls paint color
It’s that time of year we are looking outdoors and getting our exterior looking it’s best. Why not try something fun, like staining/painting a trellis or lattice in a fresh colour? Try Majestic Blue 2028-40 by Benjamin Moore.
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.
