Trend garden color: teal
It is such a gentle color that I encourage my clients who are worried about straying away from neutrals at all to use it. It will never overwhelm a space or jump out at you alarmingly (as my old friend red sometimes can). I know that you are worried about the resale value of your house and beige seems like your safest bet, but please, don't let your whole world be beige. Try a little teal. You'll like it, I promise.
This photo is from Sunbrella's advertising, so I can't give the designer of this space credit. I'd love to, though, because it is gorgeous (and the way they blurred the boundary between indoor and outdoor is admirable), so if anyone knows who did this, please let me know in the comments!
