Colour Inspiration: TEAL!

We're currently painting two custom side tables in a beautiful teal- reminiscent of a peacock's feathers. I'm falling for the colour. SICO paints picked teal as a top colour trend for 2010. In case you're not convinced, here's some teal inspiration for you. 

I love this upholstered headboard. The tufted buttons, mirrored side table, sconces and bedding make the room luxe. The bold, graphic window treatments keep the room from being too stuffy. (

This home owner isn't being shy. Way to go for it! Teal walls- bold choice and I love it. It doesn't hurt that the room has beautiful high ceilings. The darker ceiling helps to ground the room. If you don't have that 'problem', try painting your ceilings a shade or two lighter than the walls to create the illusion of a larger space. (

Our clever client pulled the teal for her side tables from a treasured painting. In this room, the lamp shade colour is pulled from the art. It's a handy way to add a punch of colour to your room without letting the room feel frenetic. (Domino, November 2007 via

And for the love of all that's decorate-able, don't forget the exterior. My friend Michelle suggested I paint my door a bold colour when I was thinking of just going for white (I'm going for a lot of white lately). Good advice! As soon as my garden is in, I'm going to pick a colour from it for inspiration and have fun with it.

Ahh... I love paint. It's such a simple solution and you can't go wrong! Well, you can go wrong but then you can just paint over the wrong to make it right.
