When designing a bedroom, you want to choose a color palette that is soothing enough for sleeping, but still stunning enough to show off. Teal is the perfect color for a bedroom because it’s in the blue-green spectrum, so it’s both calming and eye-catching.
If you can’t picture teal, imagine the color turquoise-only darker. Teal is a deep, blue-green shade reminiscent of lush lagoons and tropical waters. This luxurious hue can transform your bedroom into a relaxing oasis fit for royalty.
And who doesn’t want to feel like they’ve woken up in paradise every morning?
You can easily achieve the look and feel of an idyllic island retreat by adding this chic shade to your bedroom. Teal offers a vibrant alternative to the basic blue and earthy green theme. It washes over a room but is vibrant enough not to get washed out and it adds a splash of sophistication without seeming too showy.
Teal is iconic on its own, but when contrasted against complementary colors, the results can be truly breathtaking. Let’s take a look at some of the best bedroom designs in the teal color scheme. First up, the classic pairing of teal and white.
Teal and White Bedroom
1. Feminine Flair
Teal adds a fresh, youthful vibe that compliments any décor. Even warm wood looks good next to teal because the blueish shade enhances the orange and yellow undertones. Top it off with a sparkling chandelier and you’re an instant princess!
2. Casual Cool
A muted tone of teal lends an air of casual style that doesn’t have to try too hard yet still looks great. Dark woods will pop off this paler shade and add a richness to the humbler hue. A silvery-white comforter will bring out the cooler tones of lighter teal walls.
3. Breath of Fresh Air
If you want a bedroom that feels fresh and clean (even when it's mid-week messy) then use cooler-toned whites and a whimsical teal shade. This bedroom is a perfect example of how bright white furniture can appear against a teal background.
4. Little White, Big Impact
You don’t need a lot of white for it to stand out from teal walls. Simply add small accents and a corresponding comforter. Let the teal do the work by highlighting whatever white you choose to add to the room.
5. Coastal Romance
Sail away with this airy teal shade, white accents, and seaside accessories. Add an ocean-themed bedspread and a romantic wall inscription and you'll feel like you're on your honeymoon even when it's not your anniversary!
6. Layered Teal
Who says you only have to stick to one shade of teal to design a bedroom? The above example shows how you can layer different shades of teal to add dimension. Picking a bedspread with a busy teal-themed and white pattern will add texture and pick up the varying shades in the room.
7. Dreamy Afternoon
Soft teal walls and a rainbow bedspread will provide a dreamy ambiance in any bedroom. With the light filtering in from crepe-like curtains, you'll feel inclined to indulge in an afternoon nap.
8. Weekend Hangout
This shade of teal leans toward green and wonderfully complements the ashy brown in the bedspread. The almost minty teal balances the rich, dark wood of the furniture and highlights the white.
Teal and Gray Bedroom
This bedroom boasts bold textures nearly everywhere you look! Notice how the suede headboard in charcoal gray looks even softer against a luminous teal accent wall. Metallic fixtures add vivid contrast to this silky bedspread.

Add deep, rich wood tones to a hazy shade of teal to create a casual, but luxurious, atmosphere. When decorating a teal-themed bedroom, indulging in dark chocolate is always a good idea.
