Colour trends 2014 (UK)
Colour trends 2014 (UK) – The top trend colour for 2014 perfectly combines the natural harmony of green with the tranquillity of blue. Reflecting the overriding trend of unlocking, tthe colour for this year is ‘Teal’ which has a gentle character and is a favourite in the world of design. Deeper and more sophisticated than turquoise, teal has a subdued richness which is often used to describe tropical seas of shimmering bluish green.
A tertiary colour, teal is the combination of primary blue and secondary green which today is used to describe several different tones of this majestic colour. Somewhere between blue and green it has come to symbolise balance, but should be combined with neutral tones and shades of wood so as not to overwhelm a space.
For such a statement colour, teal is surprisingly versatile and works well in different colour combinations. Sitting opposite coral on the colour wheel it works beautifully with delicate pinkish tones and warm ochre yellow, but for a trend look should be combined with other tones of teal, green or blue to create a tone-on-tone effect. Layering teal with indigo, denim or navy provides an oceanic feeling, cool, dynamic and welcoming. Combining our Colour of the Year with greens such as mint, duck egg or emerald will give a fresh natural effect; or for a neutral combination choose a colour with a natural wood tone.
Teal = Sophisticated, balanced, versatile, tranquil which is why Emma from Ormskirk chose this colour recently for a feature wall in her living room, the result was very pleasing to the eye,and the client was made up with the result
