Get a feel for teal


From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

Aquas and teals are splashing into interiors right now, particularly accents in shades like Resene Yowza, Resene Freelance, Resene She’ll Be Right and Resene Yes Please.

Bedroom blues and greens.

But, if you’re particularly daring, try doubling down and teaming them together like in this bedroom. With walls in Resene Freelance and tongue-and-groove panelling in Resene Yes Please, this space is as aqua as they come!

The room-defining painted rug feature, inspired by agate, added plenty of interest to the Resene Wishing Well floors. With its natural, asymmetric forms, is easy to replicate the idea in your own home. We created this one using Resene Deep Teal, Resene Maestro, Resene Hullabaloo, Resene Blue Chill, Resene Yes Please and Resene Freelance.

To give this fully-saturated look some balance, pair it with crisp cotton bedding and creamy white furniture, like this rattan desk, bedside table and chair in Resene Poured Milk. Top it off with paler blue-green accessories in shades like Resene Meditation and Resene Kandinsky, like these vases, and brighten up wooden surfaces with a coat of Resene Colorwood Whitewash.

To coordinate with the painterly strokes of the flooring, we added in some watercolour patterned cushions and a coverlet from Katrina Hobbs Design.
