Mixing it up with greens

Do you get the vibe that green is starting to crowd tangerine tango out of the limelight and getting a head start on becoming the darling of 2013?

I do.

Green has steadily been making its way onto the color scene, and all of a sudden, it feels like it has exploded onto the scene. My eyes are just getting use to the intensity of kelly green, and people are already talking mint a.k.a. seafoam? Is it really time for seafoam to make a reappearance? Here’s a link to a “spotlight on seafoam” so you can be the judge.

 Michelle Lamb, trend forecaster, offered these observations from High Point this past April…”shades from Kelly and grass (incoming color) to mint (building momentum) and citron (established color), green was nipping at blue’s heels.”

Is there a place for green in your home? Some consider green a neutral because it looks great with every color of the rainbow. A citron accent wall, a beach vibe with the colors of sea glass, or a stunning blue and green combo reminiscent of the sky and leaves. I love how refreshed and happy a space feels when kelly green is used as an accent or main player. Apartment Therapy suggests keeping the rest of your color palette simple, so the green can really shine. Everything looks good around green!

Reader comments from Apartment Therapy on greens:

Seafoam green. Very 1950s. Nice on accent pieces. Less charming on walls. I was there, and it was everywhere. Schools, hospitals, department store dressing rooms, and gas station restrooms.

I just picked out the most beautiful kelly green tiles for the backsplash over our range – in an all white kitchen. Just thinking about them makes me happy!

I love it. Grew up on the beach and will never leave the beach, but this color always reminds me of collecting seaglass as a child and for that sweet memory alone it will forever be one of my favorites.

Kelly green – It is a very fresh colour, however as shades of green tend to date themselves, I would rather see this colour as an accent using accessories not expensive fixed elements.

Seafoam – Always makes me think of Martha.
