The First “Color Friday” is…Kelly Green!

22 Oct

Kelly Green!  It’s such a great mix of warm and cool: you see the richness of the yellow-ey green, but also a hint of cool blue.  It reminds me of my favorite Crayola crayon when I was a kid (which was called something like “Jungle Green”).

From L to R: Kitchen from Domino Mag (rest in peace...); Bathroom by Kelly Wearstler (ever notice how much she likes Kelly Green...hmmm, wonder why?); Hallway Vignette from Domino Magazine.

Every Friday, I’ll be posting an homage to a new color.  I’ll happily take reader requests, and am really looking forward to this new feature! Until the next post, have a look at this energizing Kelly Green collage! Like all the collages that will come after it, it includes paint colors and accessories.  I just love the name “Once Upon A Time” for the Benjamin Moore swatch; isn’t that color exactly the same shade as those cartoon-ish hilltops you see pictured on the first page of a story book?  Love it!

Clockwise from top swatch: Benjamin Moore "Once Upon A Time;" Kate Spade "Camelia Avenue" Vase; Marimekko "Matkalla Maalle" Fabric; Farrow and Ball "Folly Green;" Murano Chandelier, vendor unknown; Benjamin Moore "Jade Green;" Pantone Mug (@ $10 each, these are the coolest); Electrolux Washer/Dryer.
