Teal has become a rising star in today’s interior design world. Produced by mixing blue and green, this stunning rich color can be a perfect option to be an accent into any space.

There are a lot of different options to incorporate this stunning hue into your spaces. One of the most often used is by creating an accent wall. This approach is quite easy and affordable as you only need to repaint one side or part of your wall using teal.

Another favorite option is by adding or using some teal furniture and decoration items in your room.

However, using this approach often brings one tricky problem to most homeowners: choosing the right wall color that will match the teal furniture. If you are facing a similar problem, you are in the right place. Recently, we did some experiments to find out the best wall paint color that perfectly harmonizes with these furniture.

After trying a lot of different colors, we can conclude that white, tan, grayish-blue, cream, dusty pink, and chartreuse are some of the best wall colors for teal furniture. These hues can provide a neutral backdrop that allows the vibrant and distinctive nature of teal furniture to take center stage. Furthermore, the contrast between these wall colors with teal adds a touch of sophistication, contributing to a timeless and elegant aesthetic.

Coral is the color wheel match for teal. So, combining them can result in a unique and beautiful look where those two opposite colors produce a perfect amount of contrast to complement each other.

To get perfect results, make sure you are using the same level of saturation between the teal and the coral.

8. Chartreuse Walls

Orange will bring a similar effect with coral, but with a bit more yellow looks.

Usually, orange is used as an accent for teal, such as an orange throw pillow or orange rugs. But as you can see in the image above, this gorgeous color can still work well when used as a backdrop against teal furniture.

10. Red Walls

Using red can be risky, but when used properly, it can create a gorgeous vibrant ambiance in the room. This color also can work well when used alongside teal furniture.

However, you must choose the red shade carefully, as not all of the shades will return the same results. If you want to go with this color, we highly recommend that you go with maroon, crimson, or radish red.

11. Charcoal Walls

If you prefer to go with a bold and darker color, then charcoal can be the perfect choice for you.

Surely, going with this color can create a dark and gloomy room ambient, but when it’s combined with some vibrant color like teal, it can create a beautiful combination that helps balance one another.

However, we do not recommend painting your entire wall with charcoal. Instead, just paint one part of your wall behind the furniture and make it an accent wall.

12. Navy Blue Walls

We’ve already put the lighter shade of blue in the previous options. But if you want more depth, then some darker shade of blue such as navy blue or royal blue can also works great alongside with teal couch.

Combining dark blue with teal will highlight more green side of the teal, thus making them feel more natural and fresh.
