When should I avoid Slate Teal?
We don’t recommend Slate Teal in rooms with low light and dark ceilings unless you plan to have the lights on all day long.
Slate Teal for Exteriors
Slate Teal can be pretty for exteriors, and it can look great with a red or orange brick! You can use it as a siding color or for accents such as shutters and front doors. We don’t have photos of Slate Teal as an exterior paint color, but it’s always a good option.
Can my painter match Benjamin Moore Slate Teal to Sherwin Williams?
We never recommend paint matching unless you are willing to spend a lot of time going back and forth with the paint company. If you want to match, then make sure you check the paint color with a swatch from Benjamin Moore. Instead, consider SW Moscow Midnight.

The Verdict – Slate Teal
Slate Teal is a beautiful dark green paint color! You can use it for interiors or exteriors. If you use it for interiors make sure you have tons of natural or artificial light so that you can see the beauty in the color. In a dark room, it will look black. For exteriors, it looks great by itself or with red or orange brick or earthy stone.
No matter what, don’t forget to test your paint colors. It’s a standard best practice. Whenever I test my paint colors, they are perfect, and when I don’t test they turn out wrong. Learn how to test your paint colors here.
NEVER, EVER use paint matches from a different brand than the one specified. Results are poor and there are no standards for the sheens. Even though your painter may truly believe it can be done, don’t do it. See results from paint matching here.
We always recommend that you test paint colors in your house because lighting can change a color completely.
In the old days, this meant we painted a large poster board with sample pots and a huge mess.
