This beautiful colour looks fabulous when used as the main colour in a room set against white or ivory, however if you want something a little bolder try mixing teal with a deep rich chocolate brown.

If you love handicrafts making your own Roman blinds using a teal fabric will give you the opportunity to make matching cushions and other soft furnishings if you like a fully co-ordinated room.
