Aegean Teal, Benjamin Moore's Color of the Year 2021
Aegean Teal, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2021, was recently announced. This soft, grounded teal speaks to the moment as we leave the difficulty of 2020 behind and look to a hopeful, but grounded 2021. Studies have shown that people prefer to exist in blue interior environments. Shades of blue are proven to enhance a calm mood and soothe those who surround themselves with them. Aegean teal was chosen with kitchen design in mind. The color was inspired by stories of organic shades at farmer’s markets and the idea that “the kitchen serves as a place of nourishment” and a touchpoint for families and communities.
In 2020 Benjamin Moore choose Classic Blue for it's stability and we've needed that, right? Read Classic Blue, Color of the Year 2020.
A Soothing Bathroom Color-Aegean Teal
Aegean Teal, Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year for 2021 is a soothing color to use in a bathroom, too. Consider using it in an element that can be changed later, as a vanity paint color or towels and accessories. Wallpaper is also a great, impermanent way you can use Aegean Teal in your home this year.
A Calm Bedroom
In the bedroom, Aegean Teal can be used to accent a neutral background. Accessories like pillows, lamps, or side tables in Aegean Teal can serve as stronger accents while still maintaining a serene environment,
Aegean Teal as an Accent
Recently, we installed a rug in a living room that centered around a deeper blue-green. This rug included the shade Aegean Teal, and it pairs beautifully with the deeper shade of blue. If you have a room in your home that uses shades of blue to create a calm vibe, consider adding Aegean Teal.
A Fresh Cabinetry Color
Aegean Teal can be used as a cabinetry color, either in bathrooms, kitchens, or powder rooms. Aegean Teal is fresh and balanced and will leave you feeling the same way walking out of your bathroom and into your day each morning. The coronavirus pandemic has left many of us trapped in our homes, but Aegean Teal was chosen specifically with the idea of creating a living space that feels organic in mind.
An Organic Touch in a Kid's Room
For a kid’s room, Aegean Teal - Benjamin Moore’s color of the year for 2021- can be a perfect addition to a color palette with greens and neutrals. Again, Aegean Teal is meant to inspire a natural and organic feeling; it’s meant to be soothing. Not only will an organic and soothing color palette serve a child well in 2021, but it will also be sophisticated enough to grow with them into their teens.
Aegean Teal is a Mood Setter
In a sitting room, shades of teal can enhance a soothing and relaxing mood. For days when you just need to relax, kick your feet up, and indulge in a daydream or two, accents of Aegean Teal in your pillows or sofa are perfect mood-setters.
Finding Aegean Teal in Natural Elements
Being that this color was chosen with kitchen design in mind, we had to include an example of Aegean Teal in a kitchen pantry. Stone doesn’t have to be boring; it can be colorful too! Adding a stone countertop with a touch of Aegean Teal is a great way to incorporate this beautiful color into your home in 2021.
