We’ve developed a new colour crush – seafoam and dusty turquoise hues! Here, we’ve rounded up our top 3 interiors that utilise this refreshing colour palette to fabulous effect.


Former The Block contestants Kyal and Kara proved to be a formidable couple on the hit renovation TV show, and now the talented duo are sharing their own home renovation journey on their website! Their coastal dwelling couldn’t be any more perfect, mixing tones of sea blues with plenty of beautiful timber accents (which the couple were known for on their time on The Block). Their bedroom wall painted in Taubmans’ ‘Silver Mink’ suits the Easycraft VJ wall panels to a tee. The overall look is unmistakably contemporary coastal.

In the kitchen, they made the slightly risky move of painting their cabinetry in Taubmans’ ‘Midnight Hour’, a deep turquoise blue. But the risk paid off and the look is totally delicious don’t you think? Paired with the timber stools and gold tap and hardware, we think it’s a match made in heaven.

Brisbane architects Wrightson Stewart certainly had some fun with colour in this Toowong apartment. The design utilises colour-blocking in a refreshing mint and dusty jade palette. The overall effect feels youthful and fresh. That painted front door has given me the idea of painting my own apartment door (well on the inside at least). A great way of injecting extra colour into a space. Click here to see the full apartment tour.

I personally think a restaurant/cafe’s interior is crucial to its success or failure, (and obviously the food needs to be equally as amazing). Melbourne has possibly the best designed eateries in Australia and just one example is this one – Kitty Burns. I absolutely love the way in which designers of the space, Biasol Design Studio, have dispersed this lush minty blue colour throughout. Against the blonde timbers it really is a fresh look. Even though this is a commercial space, I feel like a lot of the design principles and ideas could be applied to a residential design.
