Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal 2136-40

Benjamin Moore Swiss Aegean Teal is a moody teal that leans heavy into the green with a generous dose of gray. Is it right for your space? Keep reading to find out.


If you want to add a pop of color to your home without overwhelming your space, try a muted version of your favorite color. Often, at the paint store we are drawn to those bold clean shades but when they are on the wall, those bright colors can be hard to live with. That's why I love Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal. This moody paint color leans into green keeping it from feeling too cold and a gray undertone keeps it soft and moody but not heavy.

What does Aegean Teal pair with? For woodwork and trim use a soft creamy white like Benjamin Moore White Dove for a more traditional space or a crisp white like Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace for a modern look. For accents, fabrics and accessories add darker teals, corals or soft oranges. For fixtures, lighting or hardware try brass, antique gold or even copper.


With an LRV (Light Reflective Value) just shy of 24, Aegean Teal is definitely on the darker side, perfect for making larger, well lit rooms more intimate. In north facing rooms, this color will look darker, with more pronounced gray undertones for a moody but cozy space.


I love how Aegean Teal packs a punch but doesn't overwhelm this dining space. It's a great contrast to the white furniture, light floors and gold accents.


In a smaller space where there may not be a lot of natural light balance Aegean Teal with bright white wainscoting or bead board.


Want to create a cozy space? Aegean Teal is stunning in the bedroom. For fabrics and accents pair it with shades of creamy, linen beige, warm gray or even blush.


Aegean Teal fits perfectly into a cottage or farmhouse aesthetic but don't limit it to just the walls. A fresh coat of paint is a great way to update those tired stairs or old floors. TIP: Make sure to ask your paint store which product will be most durable for these surfaces.

And let's not forget Aegean Teal in the kitchen. Its looks cheerful and fun paired with copper toned hardware, granite counters and matching backsplash.

Want to see if Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal will work in your space? The best way to find the right color for you home is to try a sample before making a commitment. Remember that lighting has a huge effect on how we see color. You can purchase a tester pot and paint the wall or order a peel-and-stick sample of Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal from Samplize. They are made with two coats of real paint making them100% accurate representation of the final color on your walls. Each easy-to-peel paint sample can be repositioned multiple times to different locations on your wall to compare how it may look in different lighting or to other colors.
