Keep it teal with our top ideas for using the richest colour of the moment.
There’s no denying teal is the season’s hottest hue. Whether you’re looking to create a calm and cool atmosphere or adding a pop of lush colour to a neutral scheme, the shade that’s a little bit green, a tad blue and a whole lot of cool can be used in a multitude of ways.
Your workspace should inspire creativity and motivation. Keep it simple, neutral and fuss-free but add bright aqua pendant lamps and cool minty accents to help inject a bit of life to the scheme. The 28 Series Glass Pendant Lights (from £320 each, Twentytwentyone) seen in this picture are a great way to add a pop of colour while keeping the scheme minimal.
Climb the ladder
Mixing textures and interesting accessories builds interest and adds depth to a room. We love the use of this Elm ladder (£195, Orchid) for storing the weekend papers, ready to be devoured in a luxurious armchair.
A sumptious velvet ottoman worked in jewel-like peacock creates a dramatically glamorous feel on an all-white backdrop. Accessorise with gorgeous cushions like the Brera Colorato striped cushion (£75, Designers Guild).
The natural wood in this cabinet makes an elegant foil for the impact of bold blue – the ideal stash for a treasure trove. These resin coral sponges (£17, Kelly Hoppen) are a great accessory to add a deep sea edge.
An elegant leather table commands centre stage, but offset any fusty formality with fun objects like this Shark Figurine (£39.99, Zara Home). Your house, your rules…
Sophisticated colours can still have their fun side and figurative lamps are as on trend as teal. This Toucan Velvet and Flock lamp (£80, Abigail Ahern at Debenhams) adds a little quirk to a refined room.
