Ideas for small spaces: Bright teal blue bedroom + jewel tone accents

In his Los Angeles bungalow, interior designer Moises Esquenazi used big color in a small space: he painted his guest room Benjamin Moore's Newburg Green, a lush deep teal that plays off the hot, tropical-hued fabrics of the throw pillows. A silver-leafed wooden deer head gives the room a "sprinkling of out-there embellishment."

    Anyone gotta clue what color this might be? I tried the Benjamin Moore Newburg green and there is no way this is the same color in the pic!

    Hi there,

    The House Beautiful story accompanying this photo specified the color as Newburg Green. While it's possible that the editors made an error, what's more likely is that the color, as it appears in the magazine (and on your monitor), simply looks very different than it does on the paint chip (or on your walls).

    When you find a photo of an interior and want to recreate the paint color, I've found that the best thing to do is take the image to a paint store. A paint specialist can custom-mix a color for you that matches the paint color in your photograph.

    Good luck!

    Javi- Thank you SO much for the info. Probably a typo in the magazine...Even considering the magazine print color and the computer monitor differences...its just NOT the same color. This has been THEE hardest color for me too match...well besides my ongoing battle with shades of gray! Thanks again, and I will be sure to take the pic to my paint store!

    You know, I think it must be Newburg Green. See, for example, this photo. And this blog post.

    All of these photos appear similar to the color above.
