A touch of teal: Dulux color of the year 2014

Dulux predicted teal as the color of choice for 2014. A stark contrast to Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Radiant Orchid. I have to admit that I find myself firmly rooted in the Dulux camp on this one. Teal is by far a more refreshing color. According to Dulux, it “combines the natural harmony of green with the tranquility of blue to symbolize balance”, and I concur.

Teal sea urchinTeal, or ‘Sea Urchin 1’, the precise shade specified by Dulux, combines beautifully with shades of blue and green, placing it comfortably within the palette of my current color crush, duck egg blue. Yay! This versatile shade can be used to transform the mood in any room. Already a big fan, I have my eye on a few items for a touch of teal in the kitchen.

And speaking of plans for my kitchen, I’ve created two teal ‘inspirational posters’ which I need to get framed, you know, a little something-something to keep me calm when the smalls are tugging on my last nerve. If only it were that simple.. [insert dramatic sigh]… but hopefully they’ll look good.

    • These RÖNNINGE chairs are new at @ikeauae and we're wild about their elegant simplicity. In fact, therevare a few new items that have caught our eye there recently so we've rounded up some favourites on houseofhawkes.com. link in bio. #ikea #favourites
    • Can we call it a day yet? #home #evening #winetime
    • It started with a conversation over lunch that went something like this: 'so these custom doors and tops that we're forever making for clients, we should probably just make more and sell them because everyone always asks where we got them'... hmm, 'seems like a perfectly reasonable plan for two people already overwhelmed by their workload. Yalla, let's do it!' And then there was the #billyhack that accelerated our @fronteriors launch plans. Read all about my exciting new business venture with @liveloudgirl on the blog. Link in profile.
    • Walking our the door with a long to do list ahead of me, including a stop to pick up Ethan's new passport that I applied for early September 2018. Better late than never, eh!? In case you missed the news about my design collaboration with @helmiibeds there's a post on the blog with all the details - and it's available to shop online if you're in the market for an awesome new bed with a handy removable cover! 📷 by @marli_smithphotography #helmiiXhouseofhawkes #bedslipcover #removablebedcover #bedroomstyling #bedroomdecor #houseofhawkes
    • The kids and I escaped for RAK to join friends for an overnight getaway. Safe to say the smalls have had a blast!

    • I'm taling the kids on an overnight mini vacay to Ras Al Khaimah today, although they've talked it up to something substantially more glamorous... and now it's raining. Really, weather?! Anyhoo, how cute is this room? Our refreshed website is live and a tour of this space will be on there soon. But first, the mini-break. 📷 by @marli_smithphotography

    • Bed. That's where the party's at for me tonight. I can feel a cold coming at me like a freight train so I'm dosing myself and catching some early zzz's. This room though, and that afternoon light, from our styling sesh at casa @whitemossdecor is giving me good vibes. Night night insta family.
