Benjamin Moore announced last week that Aegean Teal is the color of the year for 2021. A blend of blue and green, with subtle hints of gray, Aegean Teal is a mid-tone that offers endless possibilities. Join Best Design Books and discover everything about this amazing color and how to style it!
With its warm, earthy tones, Aegean Teal will bring comfort to your home. The rich shade has a certain amount of saturation that will satisfy color enthusiasts, while its earthy quality makes it eminently usable in any home environment.
While Aegean Teal might seem like a departure from First Light, Benjamin Moore’s 2020 Color of the Year, the brand’s color and design manager Hannah Yeo argues that it’s a continuation of an emerging trend.
Benjamin Moore started the selection process for this color in late 2019 and chose Aegean Teal in January—long before the COVID-19 pandemic was in full force and shelter-in-place orders were in effect. But despite the turn of events, Aegean Teal feels just as relevant today as it did earlier this year. After a year like this, the blue and green tones will bring an invigorating yet soothing spirit to our spaces.
