Our picks to click this week:

Desire to Inspire ( is on the hunt for the perfect shade of teal (more green, less blue) for painting a bedroom/dressing area. Beautiful spaces featuring the color are posted for inspiration. The top photo features the blogger's current favorite shade: Benjamin Moore's Bella Blue.
