Kelly green has been a trend in decorating for a while now, and it's one that we really enjoy. It's a little bit preppy, bold but not brassy, and has the potential to look very elegant. We love it against a bright white, paired with a buttery yellow, or used as an accessory... FIRST ROW • In a bright, white space, kelly green really stands out. • A soft version of kelly green accentuates the architectural details in this ">lively loft. • Kelly green chairs look great in a sunny breakfast nook. • In a small bathroom, kelly green walls make a big impact. • A green wall is a pretty backdrop for books. SECOND ROWA bedroom color scheme gets a little jolt of kelly green from an Andy Warhol print. • Green paint brings a sense of fun to this bright kitchen. • In a bedroom, a kelly green wall can be very peaceful. • Against a yellow painting, kelly green is very spring-like. • It works just as well as an exterior paint color.
