Dulux Proud Peacock is a sumptuous shade to use in an interior if you’re looking to make a definitive statement.

Many choose to play it safe with neutral colours through fear of working around such a bold colour that could disrupt their interiors.

Statement colours really can look sensational in a home whether you create a singular feature wall, go all in, or create a wall mural with it.

Feeling intrigued by using Proud Peacock in your home? Let’s explore what colours go with Proud Peacock, and how best to utilise it in your home.

What Colour Is Dulux Proud Peacock?

Dulux Proud Peacock is a deep teal shade which has undertones of blue and green. This warm colour exudes opulence and elegance in a space. If you want to make a bold statement in your home, this is a perfect choice. It’s designed for all rooms in the home and is great for use in a living room.

Not sure if it will work in your space? Always buy a Dulux tester before committing so you can paint a patch in the chosen room and look at the shade at different times throughout the days to see what it looks like under different lights.

What Colours Go With Proud Peacock?

Tonal Combinations

Proud Peacock has green and blue undertones, so tonally it works well with Dulux suggested colours like Jade White and Teal Facade.

Proud Peacock is a deep shade, so pairing with lighter hues will help to create a tranquil colour scheme. Jade White is a perfect colour for layering, this could be introduced with simple decor accessories, cushions and throws in a space.

Neutral Combinations

To avoid things feeling a little bit too cold, neutral combinations are a great way to make the colour more subtle in your interiors, tranquil and achieve that coastal feel.

Cornflower White is a great all rounder neutral which has blue undertones, this makes it a perfect pairing for Proud Peacock. For a slightly more defining colour, pair with Dove Slate. This colour would work well as a grounding aspect in the room on doors, architraves and skirting boards.

Designer’s Choice Combinations

Pairing colours tonally is great, but if you feel it stifles your creativity, there’s lots of other fun colours you can choose to mix together.

I personally love the recommendation of pairing Cookie Dough, a warm brown neutral that will soften the setting. Blossom White is another neutral that would work seamlessly as another wall colour, or in decor accessories.

Proud Peacock & White

If you want to both brighten and elongate the room, a bright white shade is a perfect colour to pair with Proud Peacock.

If you’re using Proud Peacock on your walls in a room, add bright white to a ceiling to instantly elevate your room. As you enter the room your eye will instantly be drawn up the wall to the bright white shade, instantly giving the illusion of a taller room.

Proud Peacock & Black

This deep teal shade is already pretty defining, but if you’re looking to achieve a modern decor scheme, definitely introduce black. Black is a defining characteristic of modern design and subtle black accents will ground the room, and tie it together.

Introduce black in subtle ways such as on decorative accessories, mirrors, chair legs and interior hardware details.

Proud Peacock & Gold

Teal is already such a sumptuous colour, but pair it with gold and you have a really regal, elegant colour scheme.

Introduce gold with throws, cushions, decor accessories and even on interior hardware details from sockets & switches to cabinet knobs.

Proud Peacock & Blush Pink

A feminine and really soft colour pairing of this teal shade is combining it with blush pink. This complimentary pairing is well balanced as teal is a calm, tranquil shade whereas pink introduces a gorgeous energy and warmth to a space.

Introduce this pink shade with textiles such as throws, cushions, curtains and decor accessories in the home.

Proud Peacock is a stand out colour in a home, suitable for living rooms, hallways and even bathrooms. It brings warmth and depth to the space and is highly complementary with other colours. Are you a fan of Proud Peacock in the home?
