October is a month that transitions us into the cooler season to come. The last days of summer can be savored while enjoying water-based excursions like sailing or kayaking. Behr’s paint color Ocean Abyss MQ6-01 is a deep teal that brings with it a huge scoop of relaxation.
Ocean Abyss is a deep, nautical teal for relaxed and sophisticated spaces. Because teal sits in both the blue and green family it has associations with nature and spirituality-think turquoise gemstones and warm tropical waters.
Deep Abyss is a cool and calming hue, creating an oasis of relaxation perfect for bedroom walls.
Subtle color counterparts balance the bold intensity of Ocean Abyss. Paired with a softer blue upper wall, this shade works well on the lower wall, such as on beadboard, decorative trim or a fireplace mantel. These color mixes create an inviting, soothing space. Potted plants or plant cuttings enhance the natural relaxation vibe in this space.
Ocean Abyss gives this small retro dining room a dynamic jolt of energy. It’s the perfect backdrop for carefully curated Lucite chairs and a round, white-topped table.
We think Ocean Abyss is also a perfect wall color for a room that doubles as a home office. Splashes of white in the form of doors, a fireplace or even wood trim keep the space looking bright and crisp. A wood desk looks simply stunning in such a space.
Dramatic color can be displayed subtly by painting cabinetry and other furnishings. Brass or gold-toned cabinet hardware stands out like a precious metal treasure on a teal vanity cabinet. White walls, ceiling and countertops add just the right amount of light to make the space feel airy, serene and stress free.
