Teal: What happens when you mix blue and green.
When I moved into this apartment, I all but banned blues and greens. They reminded me of some people I didn’t like; I wanted this part of my life to be as free as possible of their influences. The result is a bright space with a sunny energy.
This no accident
When I omitted the cool blues and greens, I was forced to use the warmer red tones instead. The result is a unique (to my experience) saturation of cheerful color. And, I can appreciate others’ homes even more because they are so different from mine.
Teal, then, is a challenging color for me. It’s a rich jewel tone that I simply don’t use very much.
But orange resonates. It’s part of my ordinary day.
Stuff I like looking at
Even the train I take to work is on the orange line. That’s purely coincidental but oh, the irony!
