Teal and Red

I was about to start eating my lunch the other day and couldn't get over how much I liked the colour combination of my food and plate.

Yes, the youngest pride and joy thought I was nuts as I ran to get my camera to capture this delicious combination.

I thought I would do a little digging and see how many beautiful photos I could find using teal and red.  It turns out there are teal and red combinations everywhere - 

in bedrooms,

and kitchens,

and dining rooms,

Elle Decor

and cushions, 


and even doors in far off  lands.

Is teal and red a delicious combination in your mind or a little too bright for you?

  1. I absolutely love that combination. When we move into our new home I think I will do a room in that combo! Happy Friday.

  2. It is such a wonderful combination of colors! Have a great weekend :o)

  3. I think it is the perfect color combination, Grace. Cath Kidston uses it all the time, and I love it!!!

    Isn't it funny how the most mundane things (like eating lunch) can inspire us if we are paying attention. Great post!

  4. Looks wonderful! I realized I didn't have many shades of blue in my home and started adding turquoises and next to my reds it just popped! Great photos! Kitd

  5. I think a little red goes perfectly with just about any color :) I think this color combination is really cheerful.

  6. You really got us seeing around and thinking with new eyes:) Hope you had a nice lunch and lovely weekend!
