But it was the color of the deeper waters that really impressed me. A dark, luxurious blue-green color. I hesitate to call it teal, because that brings to mind some bad design from the early 1990's, but I suppose teal would be the most accurate description. More than once I remarked that the color begged to be on a wall somewhere. It won't be appearing on my own walls anytime soon, because after painting every room in this house, if I so much as suggest painting anything I cringe and my better half starts looking into mental health facilities for me. Even so, these images are going in my inspiration file:
Forgive the hatch marks, but I love the punch of the white furniture against these dark walls.
Some sort of faux finish has been used here, and I actually like the depth that it gives the sea-colored walls.
Gorgeous! So calming and glamorous.
Candice Olsen used the deep teal color in this dining room.
Great vignette on walls the color of the Caribbean.
Again, the light colored furniture and accessories really pop off the deep walls.
Another faux finish in deep teal. This very nicely echoes the deep nature of the color of the sea.
