If you’re looking to make a statement in your interiors, Dulux Teal Touch could be the perfect choice. It delivers a warm burst of colour and works well within a coastal inspired home decor scheme.

Whether you’re using this shade to colour block, paint an entire room or just introduce it on a feature wall, you’re probably wondering what colours pair well with this statement making shade.

Join me as I delve into the intricacies of Dulux Teal Touch and explore what colours go well with this teal shade.

What Colour Is Dulux Teal Touch?

Dulux Teal Touch is a bold blue-green shade that can look different depending on the lighting that its shown in. A warm shade that looks great in a coastal inspired home, it works well with neutral shades and some other bold colours in an interior scheme.

I’d always recommend buying a tester pot of the shade first and painting a swatch in your chosen room. This will give you the opportunity to look at the shade in different lights throughout the day.

What Colours Go With Dulux Teal Touch?

Tonal Combinations

Dulux Teal Touch has blue and green undertones so it pairs well with other like tonal combinations.

Both Peppermint Candy and Teal Facade are blue green shades that work in harmony with Teal Touch. These colours could be incorporated into a room with zonal sections, painted furniture, or they could be the subject in another room.

Neutral Combinations

Teal Touch is a statement making shade, so pairing with other bold colours isn’t such an easy feat as you’ll end up with colours fighting for attention. So, naturally this teal shade does pair really well with other neutral paint colours.

These colour combinations are perfect for a minimal or modern style decor scheme. Cornflower White is a very pale grey, off-white paint shade which has blue undertones to the colour, this makes it a perfect white pairing for Teal Touch. Whilst Warm Pewter helps to ground it and define the space. This shade could work effectively on doors, skirting and architraves to add definition to the room.

Designer’s Choice Combinations

Whilst I personally think neutrals and tonal colours are the best pairings for Teal Touch, Dulux recommend a couple of additional colour shades to pair with this coastal colour.

Blush Pink is a beautifully understated pink, adding a touch of femininity to the space, whilst Cookie Dough is a more defining, caramel, brown shade.

Dulux Teal Touch & Black

If you’re creating a modern looking interior decor scheme, incorporating black is a perfect choice. A black accent is a defining characteristic of modern design, and it provides a defining and grounding accent against Teal Touch.

Black should be used sparingly with interior hardware details such as door handles, small pieces of furniture like console tables or side tables, and as an accent on decor accessories such as prints.

Dulux Teal Touch & White

An off-white is a great pairing for Teal Touch, especially a Dulux shade such as Cornflower White which has blue undertones. However, if you want to really lift things and provide a stark contrast, bright white is a great choice.

If you’re using Teal Touch on the walls, lift the room by painting the ceiling and skirtings with a bright white paint. The contrast from the walls to the ceiling will draw the eye up as you enter the room, helping the room to feel larger than it actually is.

Dulux Teal Touch & Cream

Cream shades bring a much warmer aesthetic to space than bright white, and it’s a much more forgiving colour against imperfections and scratches.

This warm neutral is a beautiful pairing for Teal Touch, incorporate it by layering different textures too, think boucle, wool and calico to name a few.

Dulux Teal Touch & Grey

The cool tones of grey complement the blue-green undertones of Teal Touch. It creates a calming and sophisticated combination in a bathroom, living room or even a kitchen.

Introduce grey as an accent colour on furniture and textures such as cushions, throws or curtains.

Dulux Teal Touch & Mustard

Fewer bold colours pair well with Teal Touch like neutrals do, but you can still be brave with certain colours that will deliver a beautiful finish together. The golden hue of the shade mustard adds warmth and depth to teal, creating a rich and stylish combination.

You will only want to use the colour mustard as an accent colour in the space, a few well placed items is all you need to avoid overload. Introduce mustard cushions, a throw and a pop of the colour on some artwork.
