How to use Aegean Teal in Bohemian-style decor 

This bright, lively colour is surprisingly versatile and can be added to bohemian-style decor in a myriad of ways. Reminiscent of the vivid hues of the Mediterranean, Aegean Teal has a place in the avid traveler’s home.

Entrance and hallway. Greet guests with an Aegean Teal-coloured front door or hallway to make a striking first impression. The bright and friendly colour signals that they are about to enter a warm, comforting space inside your home. And that’s not even mentioning the street appeal that comes with a beautifully painted front door.

Walls. Neutrals never go out of style, but if you find yourself longing for a pop of color here and there, perhaps it’s time for a new paint job. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, go ahead and give the walls a full coat of Aegean Teal.

But sometimes only an accent wall or ceiling can handle such an intense color. When painted over a white, grey or black base, this teal shade truly comes alive and makes quite an impact.

Fabrics. Curtains, carpets, upholstery, bed canopies, lamp shades and other decorative fabrics can help you add touches of Aegean Teal without going overboard. Play around with different patterns and textures for a more eclectic feel. 

Kitchen. Breathe new life into your kitchen with Aegean Teal, which does a wonderful job of playing to the senses. This colour looks wonderful on kitchen cabinetry, cupboards, tables and chairs, especially when paired with brass hardware. You can also experiment with teal-coloured tiles for your kitchen backsplash, sink and counters for that Mediterranean flair. 

Furniture. Painting old pieces of furniture with Aegean Teal can update your space. Take a chair, stool, side table or headboard and give it a new colour to infuse your space with the warmth and excitement of Southern Europe. Give your bathtub or kitchen sink an Aegean Teal glaze for an unexpected twist.  

Artwork. The bohemian aesthetic is synonymous with art, and what better way to introduce a new colour than to bring in a few paintings, sculptures and drawings? A hand blown Aegean Teal glass vase or bowl conjures images of Santorini while paintings and photos with the colour can bring the beauty of the Aegean to your home.
