Teal is a blue-green and is a firm favourite for those who want the coolness and depth of blue with the warmth of yellow. Teal is a very versatile colour, allowing you to create a whole range of feelings within a space. Depending on the shade of teal you opt for, you can create a sense of opulence and sophistication, or a lighter shade of teal can feel more invigorating and fun.

Using teal and violets together creates a fresh, modern look.
Teal and violet both have blue undertones, which make them work well together, however, violet can overwhelm teal if you’re not careful!
To avoid a clash, we would recommend building your scheme around teal and using shades of violet as an accent colour.
