Let's Talk About Teal

Ever since the Pantone Color Institute declared "Tangerine Tango" the color of the year for 2012, for keen-eyed designers there's been and elephant in the room and its NOT pink.

Teal, (sometimes confused with "Peacock Blue" which has more blue) and their brighter cousin, Turquoise are making a huge splash this year.  After slowly sneaking into the modern palette, teal is showing up big and making bold statements in interiors.

With some notable exceptions, these vibrant hue's don't seem to be replacing our beloved neutrals, but instead we are seeing the blue-green hues functioning as a pop of color in otherwise colorless rooms, or paired with contrasting but equally vibrant colors, such as Magenta, gold and yes, our very own color of the year Tangerine Tango.

Happily for all both the official and the under the radar colors of the year look fabulous together. 

So get ready, go forth and mix yourself up some fresh and festive Teal for 2012!
