I have loved the color teal in homes for as long as I can remember. The vibrant rich color is said to prompt a calm energy in a room making it feel a bit more like home.
There are many variations of the color to choose from depending on both your personal style and the amount of light the room gets naturally. If the room sees a lot of sun feel free to experiment with a darker shade. A dark, rich shade is what has captured my heart (like the Gypsy Teal shown above).
The color definitely has a Morrocan, bohemian vibe about it that can add a fun pop to a modern home. I also feel there is something very regal about jewel tone colors.
To me, an ideal use is in a living room, sitting room, or library but the uses are endless. As seen above, it's beautiful in a bathroom.
Other ways to use it, an accent on the ceiling, in furniture, or art.
