2016 Interiors Colour Trend – Teal Green
In our new weekly colour trend post, the Warehouse Home Team will present an array of popular colours and explore key designs across the shade spectrum. As with most elements of design, colours go in and out of fashion quicker than you can get them on your walls. But there are some which are enduring and dependable favourites; like this week’s colour, Teal Green.
“Teal is incredibly versatile. It’s a colour that would equally be at home with rich woods and gilt or fresh whites and seagrass furniture,” says interiors expert, Capella Kincheloe. In a warehouse conversion or industrial scheme, teal green complements exposed brickwork, raw concrete, natural wood and galvanised piping. It brings a smart dash of colour to a muted backdrop and makes a statement without appearing too garish. Take a look at our favourite uses of Teal Green:
This eye-catching teal green glass lamp shade was created using a 1930s American electrical pylon insulator. The cast metal housing, also original, was added for wall mounting as a unique sconce.

This heavy-duty industrial work station dates from the 1960s and was sourced from a derelict factory in the Czech Republic. It combines a sturdy metal frame with wooden drawers and would look equally at home in a study or even in the kitchen.
