Color Close-up: Kelly Green

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...
