Jamie Drake is in this month’s Elle Decor so I went on his website [so beautiful] and picked my favourite, which is this Manhattan Residence decorated in kelly green, white & brown.
I have been predicting that this colour is coming back for over a year now and here it is in one if Jamie’s interiors! Greens have been yellow based for many years now so the pendulum has to swing back to the bluer greens which has certainly happened with the blue and chocolate brown combination – that blue has moved to teal which is huge in designer fabrics right now.
Jamie loves large, oversized round ottomans. They are certainly a great piece in a big living room that doesn’t cut off the other side of the room while providing extra seating.
Notice how he’s combined a fresh clean, yellowy green with the kelly. I once had a designer friend of mine say “All greens go together” and in most cases, I think she’s right.
Love these Barbara Barry inspired dining chairs (I think her circles are wider so I’m not sure if these are the same ones).
The piece that makes Kelly green (which is suspiciously close to Forest Green from the 80’s) look fresh and new is pairing it with white which is what all the designers [that use this colour] are doing.
