Don't be afraid of bold hues on your walls. In a glossy paint, you'll get enough reflective glow despite the darker color.
It doesn't have to be this literal, but with the table lamp and bedspread a peacock pillow really struts its stuff.
If you have trepidations about upholstering something big like a sofa in such a specific tone, side chairs are a safer bet. Check out the drama they lend to this otherwise neutral room — like a pair of blue suede shoes!
Remember what I said about moody? This lower level bar gets it down to a T. And in slick tile, plenty of light still gets reflected around to brighten the space.
There are so many other fun elements in this room that the teal dining chairs don't steal the show. But with white walls it makes a smart color combination for this hip beach house — far less expected than typical royal blue.
Deep teal even makes vinyl look good, and that's seriously saying something!

This warm kitchen needed a cooling element, and an unexpected coat of teal paint up above provides it with style.
Baby steps: A rich blue throw pillow gives just a hint of the color. I am crazy about it combined with chartreuse, too!
The Chinese daybed is the star of this room — and painted accordingly. But unlike other bright colors, peacock blue maintains the calming spa-like feel of the space.
Yes, these deeply vibrant blues can definitely do calm. Whether in a bathroom...
