There's a color from the Atomic Era that started standing out to me, recently. Teal (or turquoise...shades within that color family)!
And I've decided to give teal a chance.
My kitchen is a cute Atomic blue, cherry red and white with chrome trim.
But my basement retreat I hope to transform into a softer 1950's color scheme.
Pink, Teal and Cream (with maybe a lavender velveteen thrown in there).
I plan on trying teal with a lamp for my workstation.
So, off I went to Aunt Katie's Attic (no, I'm not getting paid to advertise for them, but it is my asylum, currently. I go there to unwind.) but I did not find what I was looking for.
Ebay didn't yield anything I really loved, or they were too expensive.
I am browsing Etsy right now, but again, price is an issue.
Teal is popular at Target in their teen line. I may settle for that, but I want a gloriously large lamp, not a desk lamp.
There's Goodwill. I could try there.
Otherwise, I could repurpose. Do they make teal spray paint?
