Watch my Colour review and see how I was ahead of the trend since I used the 2021 Colour of the Year in my home studio more than 3 years ago!

Are you ready? Let’s do this.

Benjamin Moore Colour of the Year:

Aegean Teal 2136-40

Agean Teal

I painted my studio ceiling Aegean Teal because it worked beautifully with other decorative items in the space.

If you follow my blog and advice, you will know that this is what I always recommend to ensure you choose the RIGHT paint colour the FIRST time.

The secret is in finding the best tone that will work with other elements in your home. For this space, it was my fireplace wallpaper, the fabric on my window treatment and the area rug that provided inspiration to specify Aegean Teal on the ceiling.

Amid uncertainty, people yearn for stability

With their reveal of the colour of the Year, Benjamin Moore’s press release stated the following:

“Amid uncertainty, people yearn for stability. The colours we surround ourselves with can have a powerful impact on our emotions and wellbeing,” said Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore Director of Colour Marketing & Development.

“Aegean Teal 2136-40 and the corresponding Colour Trends 2021 palette express a welcoming, lived-in quality that celebrates the connections and real moments that take place within the home.”

    I really love the Aegean Teal. Would you use this color for the outside of a stucco home? If yes, what trim would look nice with white windows? Thank you

      Hi Tammy! Take a look at the Atrium White that is in the colour palette, as that looks lovely with Aegean Teal. Other whites that would work are Benjamin Moore’s Cloud White and Oxford White, as just a couple of examples. Cheers for hanging out with me on the blog!

    I love the new colours!!! I’m a sucker for warms tones paired with whites and creams., so this delights me to no ends! I love your office and rug. I purchased the same or similar one in charcoal! 🙂 Love it!!

    I love Aegean teal and plan to use it to repaint my currently dark red accent wall. My kitchen is Colorado Grey (same colour card as Aegean teal). I need to determine my living/dining room colour first. Thinking a warm greige.
