The newest way to satisfy your craving for last year’s blue is to treat your décor to this year’s “it color,” teal.  Like ubiquitous blue, teal is cool and comforting, but its green cast makes it more nurturing, invigorating and exotic. With shades ranging from deep aqua to saturated peacock, teal pairs well with white and cream for a serene, soothing effect. It also harmonizes beautifully with terra-cotta and warm browns, and gets all moody when married to rich emerald and dark navy. Add a shot of hot pink, sunny yellow or bright lime and this all-the-rage color instantly turns playful and ready for poolside.
