Imagine the deep, rich teal of a secluded, clear pool of tropical water. This enticing, relaxing shade is blue lagoon, a dynamic color that looks equally attractive as a stunning summer dress or in a mid-century modern kitchen. Many of the world’s most beautiful locations carry this name, including a geothermal spa in Iceland, an island in the Bahamas, a nature preserve in England, and a national park in Zambia. This shade of turquoise is directly across the color wheel from coral, so pairing these dynamic hues makes both look more vibrant. Try a blue lagoon shift with your favorite coral lipstick, or take it to the next level with accessories in brilliant orange. Men shouldn’t shy away from adding this green-blue to their wardrobes. It looks stunning when paired with buttery lemon yellow, olive green, and dark charcoal gray. In fact, blue lagoon is considered a universally flattering color, appealing on all complexions and with every hair and eye color. Bring the tranquility of the tropics into your home when you use blue lagoon in your decor palette. Dip your toes in with a single piece of furniture, like a plush couch or an upcycled dresser. Go for a statement wall or paint an entire room in this soothing hue. We love blue lagoon with natural colors like camel, taupe, off-white, and cream.
