Rich, vibrant teal and soft blush pink are match made in heaven, creating a smart and playful look that works wonders in bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms alike. Find out more about these complementary colours and how you can use them throughout your home.


About the colour teal

Teal is a luxurious blend of blue and green. Offering the soothing stability of blue along with the energy and vibrance of green, it is a colour of balance and tranquility. Though eye-catching, teal remains an understated and reliable colour choice.

This popular shade is perfect for creating a peaceful space that still promotes positivity and creativity. It also works wonderfully as an accent colour, from feature walls and kitchen cabinetry, to window dressings and accessories.

About the colour blush pink

Blush pink is a gently chic shade. A mix of red with a healthy dose of white, blush pink may feature a yellow tinge for warmth, or a blue undertone for coolness. Representing care and compassion, blush pink is a modern kind of neutral, providing a fun alternative to cream and nude tones.

This light pink colour is synonymous with purity and relaxation. However, it also brings a contemporary edge, steering away from the feminine and more towards a versatile androgyny. This makes blush pink a brilliant choice for rooms throughout the home, especially as it teams so beautifully with darker shades of navy, grey and, of course, teal.

How to use teal and blush pink in your home

When placed together, teal and blush pink strike the perfect balance of energy and warmth. While greys, blues and mistier tones will cool down teal, the reddish undertones of blush pink warms things up. This ensures that your space retains a cosy and comfortable feeling.

In terms of textures, this colour combination works wonderfully with materials that nod towards the retro, such as dark woods and glass. For a modern look, try mixing with marble and metals. For soft furnishings, consider velvet for a luxurious look, or light cotton blends for something understated.

For patterns, the currently trending foliage and geometric prints are both ideal choices for exploring this trend. Look for fabrics with neutral backdrops and blue, teal and green prints or embroidery, such as birds, leaves and flowers. Modern geos with pattern repeats in misty pinks, blues and mauves also work well, or simple teal or blush pink prints upon a plain background.

As we’ve mentioned, teal is a brilliant accent colour. But if a velvet sofa in this shade is too much of a statement for you, you can update your existing furniture with contrasting cushions. A largely blush pink and neutral room will also benefit hugely from a few well-placed teal accessories. Blush pink walls work extremely well, especially when punctuated with some deeper tones.
