Color Catalog: Reflecting Pool


Looking to make waves? Reflecting Pool (SW 6486) is an accessible take on teal, simultaneously bringing retro cool and a more modern edge to any room.

Selected by HGTV Home as their 2019 Color of the Year, Reflecting Pool is shown off in their Sophisticated Whimsy curated room (above) with mid-century inspired accents in a space that feels anything but dated. It’s a look that can be achieved through a careful balance of playfulness and sleek styling.

With a fun color like Reflecting Pool, it’s wise to keep furniture and accessories more neutral, with simple lines. However, don’t be afraid to bring the accent color out in a BIG way–this bold sofa helps section off the room and actually makes the bright, happy Reflecting Pool look a little more demure by contrast.

As for accessories, try playing around with negative space. Graphic lines on a white canvas and materials like wrought iron or terrazzo are all clever ways to bring visual interest without overwhelming the room.
