Looking for the perfect teal blue paint color? Let’s talk about Behr Tower Bridge and if it might be perfect for your home!
I love a coastal chic look. So, of course, I decorate with a lot of teal!
Teal and turquoise colors can be tricky because they can quickly go tiffany blue. Which is fine – but a bit much for a wall color.
When shopping for a teal paint color, it’s super important to choose something muted, with gray undertones, to keep it from looking too bright.
I love Behr’s Tower Bridge paint color. It’s a bright teal that I have used to paint a big dresser, cabinets in our laundry room, and our guest bedroom in our old house.
It’s the perfect muted teal paint color!
Behr Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge is a blue paint color – though some would call it cyan. I don’t like the term cyan because it brings to mind neon colors, and this is much more muted.
Light Reflectance Value
Light Reflective Value is the measurement of how much light a color bounces around. This is on a scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being pure black and 100 being pure white.
With an LRV of 32, Tower Bridge is a color with plenty of depth to it. Even in brightly lit rooms, it won’t be washed out. However, it’s not too dark either. It packs the perfect punch!

RGB describes the amount of each color – red, green, and blue – present in a color. This is on a scale of 0 to 255 for each color. This is basically the color mix to make the color!
Tower Bridge is a blue color with a LOT of green undertones. It also has gray undertones, which gives it a muted and not too bright tone.
I have used this color for furniture, cabinets, and walls of a room. I think it would look great on a front door or shutters, too!

- Behr Venus Teal
- Benjamin Moore Williamsburg Wythe Blue
- Sherwin Williams Tranquil Aqua
- Valspar Zen
Pair this color with crisp whites, navy blue, and any light, bright accent color. Make sure the accents are at least 2 shades lighter or darker than Tower Bridge for enough contrast.
I prefer to pair cool toned colors like this one with crisp white trim for a high contrast look.
