Welcome to BeColorful's latest feature: Color of the Week.
Last week I started this feature with the 2011 Pantone Color of the Year - Honeysuckle.
This week I am exploring what I call Spring Green.
I found this paint chip from Olympic paints.
They call it Elf Shoe.
I like my name better.
So for the sake of this post I'll refer to it as Spring Green.
It isn't a Kelly Green or Apple Green. This green is a mid - range green with a touch of blue added in.
Combined with a lot of white I think this shade would be fresh, a bit unexpected, and would definitely feed my insatiable appetite for color.
I could see it paired with blues, either aquas, skipper blues or cobalt.
It could be great combined with a coral red
or a version of the Pantone Honeysuckle.
Spring Green and a buttery yellow would have a great modern feel.
...and just look how it sparkles against black and white.
If not a whole room then perhaps a splash of spring green in an Eames chair from Herman Miller
or a green sofa.
I've always been partial to this green tennis ball bedding by Izod.
Bring Spring Green into your life with these sassy green note cards from Personalization.
Angelina, so great to see you in a color for a change.
If it is just a hint of this color you are looking for you could pull it in with a stellar table lamp
or bring it to your table top with these to die for dishes from Kate Spade.
Even greet guests with a Spring Green humorous door mat.
I am seriously considering painting the walls in a third floor bathroom this color.
More on that tomorrow.
In the meantime, thumbs up? Thumbs down?
Either way, I'd love to hear what you think
P.S. The color swatchs in today's post came from Color Buzz - a great site that I just discovered this afternoon. They have oodles of pictures for paint color inspiration. I heart it already. Be sure and check them out when you get the chance.
