Teal can mean different things to diferent people as you have already discovered. It can be a shade of blue or green.

All of these are called Teal by Pantone

Keep in mind that a color scheme is much more interesting when it’s not all the same. you can easily use several shades of teal.

I know! We chose teal / grey and yellow to be our colours but now I’m totally regretting it. I’m going for the more blue teal but most teal things seem to be more green, maybe I should look at turquoise instead of teal….nah..I dunno..it’s such a pretty colour

We are using real, chocolate brown and ivory. Finding the right color if real has been close to impossible

Would “turqoise” or “aqua” get you closer to the teal colour you’re talking about? They tend to be more on the blue side than teal from what I’ve seen.

@Snowden:  And to me that is definitely on the blue side.

What is it that you are trying to find- in the right shade of teal, of course?

You could just use teal as an accent and your other colors as the dominant if it’s that hard to find good shades of it?

Fun fact from a scientist: Some people’s eyes pick up on the green hues more than the blue hues and vice versa, which is probably why you’ve encountered such trouble in finding the perfect shade match. Like others have suggested, you may be best off including the teal “family” rather than aiming to match a specific color. Also, weirdly, peacock blue + lime green can produce a visual impression that coordinates very synchronously with teal.

Two of my bridesmaids wore turquoise dresses, are they teal enough for you?
