New Home Decorating Color Inspiration: Turquoise, Teal and Aqua

Ready to decorate your new home?  Turquoise, teal or aqua, no matter what name you use when you refer to your favorite blue-green shade in hues from light to dark, this popular color trend for 2012 is still a great choice.

When it comes time to furnish, decorate and accessorize your new home, you may want to use it to create pops of color with accessories in your family room, kitchen, bedroom or even as the base for an anchor color accent wall, like this one featured at

You can see how well this combination of deep teal / turquoise combines with creamy off white and an almost chartreuse lighter green. Metallics, especially antique bronze and copper will really pop against this deep aqua color or combine with brushed or polished silver for a sleek, modern look.  If metallics aren’t your thing, you can also bring in other brights in secondary and primary colors like orange, green, yellow and red to play off your favorite shade of teal.

When you buy a new home by Soundbuilt Homes in King, Pierce or Thurston county, depending on where your new home is in the construction process, you may have the opportunity to choose to have accent walls painted in aqua or other colors that you love.

Your favorite aqua or teal blue green color is also going to work great out of doors.  We loved the way it meshed with the natural greenery plus the bright ceramics in this outdoor space decorating idea photo.
