I would describe this color trend as a peacock blue or possibly a dark teal blue. It’s a lovely blue-green mix that adds spunk to any color palette. I often see this color used in bohemian style designs but it works equally as well in more traditional spaces. It’s especially well suited to mid-century modern designs. Sherwin Williams calls this color Marea Baja. They forecast this color to be popular in the coming year, adding it to their 2017 Colormix. Of course, I had to find you some yummy eye candy for this soothing shade of blue. Here’s what I found…
This interior design is like a daydream. I love the mix of colors and materials and the ‘pop’ of Marea Baja is just perfect!
Now, here’s a bedroom design with a bit of a bohemian flavor. The peacock blue accent wall is the perfect backdrop to showcase the details of the light toned bed.

Or, go bold with a brightly colored room with bold color accents, including a peacock blue side table. Again, gold accents look great with this look.
Here’s another ‘Marea Baja’ painted bedroom but this time with a gold and white chevron rug. Gorgeous!
This color is often associated with peacocks. So, why not introduce a large-scale peacock patterned upholstered piece? Love!
