1. Contemporary teal living room ideas
For a fresh, relaxed and contemporary living room, combine teal with creams, beiges and cool greys. It’s best not to overdo teal, use it sparingly in accessories such as rugs, lampshades or a velvety accent chair. Or make teal the colour of an accent wall, against which you can place a grey or beige sofa dressed piled luxuriously with cushions in teal, cream and coral. Corner sofas are a popular choice for contemporary living rooms and, if you choose a modular design, you can size it to suit your space.
For a chic finishing touch, add just a touch of contemporary luxe with a metallic ceiling light or floor lamp in rich gold or silver.

2. Industrial style teal living room ideas
As a colour that’s striking when it’s found in nature – in tropical seas and ice caves, on the feathers of birds or the wings of butterflies – teal is the perfect choice of colour to balance the edginess of industrial style furniture. Reclaimed wood tables, metallic floor lamps and concrete topped or wood and metal console tables all look beautiful with teal décor and accessories.

3. Scandi teal living room ideas
Introduce teal into a Scandinavian living room. This gorgeous not-quite-blue, not-quite-green colour will look stunning against all the Nordic inspired creams, bright whites and simply designed furniture in natural wood. Choose a teal accent chair, footstool or accessories such as vases and lamps. If you want, you can add touches of coral to complement the teal – perhaps in cushions or in a geometric rug that includes both colours.

5. Relaxed teal living room ideas
If you love the warm, vivid tones of autumn you could find yourself falling for the rich combination of teal with russet. The serenity of teal contrasts with the warmth of russet for a look that transforms your living room into a tranquil, relaxing retreat.
The trick is to allow the hues work together – a comfy and characterful brown leather sofa pops against a teal wall, while a rustic wooden coffee table sits beautifully on a teal rug.
