Painting this sea green on a piece of furniture, like a dresser or a console, would provide a pretty pop in an otherwise neutral room. But the color is sophisticated enough to cover every wall (and even the ceiling!) without feeling overpowering — it's saturated and soothing all at once. Pair it with warm neutrals like beige or cream for an instant relaxing and cozy vibe. 2023 Design trend Bold enough to fit the Maximalist style and dramatic enough for Gothic Glam elegance.
