The colors teal and grey have been paired together to create some of the most charming interiors over the years. From a psychological standpoint, teal gives off a calming, yet renewing sensation. Grey is considered a neutral tone – as it lies between black and white, and it is a subdued and quiet color. When you combine the two colors, it creates a pleasant, easy environment, especially for the home.

Whether you want your space to be bold and bursting with color or relaxing and calm, below are a list of suggestions on how you can incorporate teal and grey in your living room.

When you’re aiming for something bold and bright

  • Turquoise and grey with peacock accents. Peacock feathers and its colors are beautiful and are great for adding something special.
  • Grey living room with dark teal wall.
  • A grey living room with a large ornately patterned teal rug. The ornately patterned teal rug will stand out and will add drama.
  • Dark grey, teal, and dark blue color scheme

When you prefer relaxing and calm vibes:

  • A grey living room with a solid teal rug. The teal rug adds a pop of color but does not overdo it.
  • Mixing in colors like greige and brown, in addition to teal and grey will add warmth and dimension
  • Silver grey and teal accents. The silver grey will give a sense of sophistication.
  • Grey and teal with a hint of green accents. The green will enhance a feeling of calm.

Here you have a lovely chaise sofa with an ottoman in teal velvet fabric. The ottoman can be used as a coffee table when you place a tray on top or can be used as an extra seating space when you have guests over. The walls are painted in white and grey on top. There are two leather chairs with oak frame, which match very well with the teal and the rest of the furniture in the room. While the curtains here are white, another option would have been to replace them with teal curtains, to create the perfect balance.
