Teal is the colour of the year
Published 27/01/14



THE top trend colour for 2014 perfectly combines the natural harmony of green with the tranquillity of blue.

Reflecting the overriding trend of unlocking, this muted teal has a gentle character and is a favourite in the world of design.

Deeper and more sophisticated than turquoise, teal has a subdued richness which is often used to describe tropical seas of shimmering bluish green.

A sophisticated colour, it can be used as a feature wall, as accent colours or why not go the whole hog and colour all the walls?

A tertiary colour, teal is the combination of primary blue and secondary green which today is used to describe several different tones of this majestic colour.


Somewhere between blue and green it has come to symbolise balance, but should be combined with neutral tones and shades of wood so as not to overwhelm a space. For such a statement colour, teal is surprisingly versatile and works well in different colour combinations.

Sitting opposite coral on the colour wheel it works beautifully with delicate pinkish tones and warm ochre yellow, but for a trend look should be combined with other tones of teal, green or blue to create a tone-on-tone effect.

Layering teal with indigo, denim or navy provides an oceanic feeling — cool, dynamic and welcoming.

Combining this colour of the year with greens such as mint, duck egg or emerald will give a fresh natural effect.

Or for a neutral combination choose a colour with a natural wood tone.
