A fluid and harmonious blend of nature’s neutrals, the color teal strikes a distinguished and dignified balance as it melds the calmness and clarity of blue into a pool of the effervescent energy of green. A provocative tension between warm and cool scale, the depths of this tone are enticingly effortless, pensive, and poised, all while maintaining a dynamic and conspicuous undercurrent. Derivative of its waterfowl namesake, teal pairs beautifully as wildlife intended, with warm greys and tobacco browns, while copper and russet tones fall opposite on the color wheel for a brilliant contrast in saturation, and dusty maroons and mauves gently sing like the sky at dusk.
