Aqua: Cool vs. Warm

To determine if a shade of aquamarine is warm or cool, designer Khristian Howell recommends holding the paint chip next to something yellow. When they are side by side, you’ll see the yellow (or warm) undertones come out in the aqua if the shade is warm. A cool version of aqua lends more sophistication and serenity.

Aqua in This Space: Green replaces yellow as one of the accent colors for a beach-inspired look. Leafy green draws out the cool green tones of the aqua walls.
