While Magenta might be the colour of the year, it seems fitting that we compliment it with something contrasting like a gorgeous Kelly Green.

You might think it’s too much of the same intensity and not enough simultaneous contrast, but used in the right way, it can create a feeling of luxury and add a dose of Dopamine therapy.

In this blog post, I give you a few examples for decorating with this colour as well as some cute, and quirky Kelly-Green-inspired affordable art to inspire.

Where does Kelly Green come from?

Inspired by the lush greenery and vegetation of Ireland, which also inspired the design of the Irish flag. Its name is derived from the family name ‘Kelly’. It’s a clean, bright, intense yet vivid hue and is considered an element of luck by the Irish.

How to decorate with this green colour

Kelly Green be used in a variety of ways and in any interior space. It’s quite an invigorating colour because it’s deep and intense, yet clean and uplifting too.

That’s why I think it’s makes a great theme colour for a spacious bathroom. You can install a gallery wall into a bathroom too and that works very well when you have art encased in thin gold frames. It can have a beautiful and luxurious effect, at quite a low cost if you shop wisely.

Make sure you artwork is sealed behind glass or clear acrylic to block out moisture and prevent mold.

This green looks incredible behind a well designed gallery wall. I find artwork that are bold and equally bright srand less chance of being overpowered by the intensity of the green.

Here are a few lovely decor items to start with if you’re experimenting with Kelly Green:
