HGTV.com editor Camille Smith summed it up beautifully: Our October Color of the Month is “saturated, intense and a real show-stopper.” A child of the ’80s, Camille is psyched to see the return of this bold hue. I think you’ll agree, its comeback feels nothing like that maligned decade. Today’s interpretations make fabulous design statements, like this 1940s McCoy vase or this ’60s Samsonite train case. Classic looks that are totally now. (And a color you probably never thought you’d love paired with regatta blue or grass green.)

Meet turquoise’s subdued but equally stunning big sister…a Pantone top fall color

Teal is such a great “ease me into fall” color. From those bold, sun-infused colors of summer to the moody, dark hues of winter. It pairs perfectly with aubergine, harvest gold, coffee and other excellent autumnal shades.Lili Zarghami, Managing Editor

Saturated, intense and a real show-stopper, teal demands attention. It’s transformative. Just a small amount brings a cheery popm while a teal sofa or wall creates a watery, restful backdrop. I’m stoked to see jewel tones return; buh-bye greige.Camille Smith, Editor

October’s teal is more Gossip Girl than Malibu Barbie. All moody, rich and dramatic. Honestly, this stunning color is one of my favorites to decorate with. My couch is teal!Marianne Canada, HGTV Home Studio

    LOL! Holy cow, B Straight! I never even noticed those teensy bare figures in the picture above the couch. I was looking at the subject colors. You Christians just look for smut everywhere, don't you? Warning: Stay out of the Louvre, the Art Institute in Chicago and the National Gallery in DC. I don't think your repressed heart could stand it.

    I love what they did with the colors! It looks like a fun place to be. Kudos to the Novogratz family and the seven kids (gulp). One thing I would have added to this house is a hammock chair. They have tons of colors at <a href="http://www.beachsidehammocks.com” target=”_blank”>www.beachsidehammocks.com that would have added a little extra to this already lively home. It would have just sealed the deal in my mind.
