Lately I have been specifying bluer greens. My clients are not as interested in the fresh greens and yellow greens that have been my go-to greens for years. However, two weeks ago I was in a consultation and we were standing in my clients playroom/guest room in the basement. I pulled out my greens because we were just looking for a pretty colour and my client said “Could I see something mintier?”
I’m sorry but no one has said that to me in my entire colour career. So that question to me was like a neon, flashing sign. Attention my lovelies: green is getting bluer.

We’ve certainly seen it in fashion lately! But there are lots of fashion colours that don’t translate to interiors so this tells me that we might be getting tired of the avocado greens, after all it’s more than 10 years old.
Kelly greens have been all over design blogs and magazines for a few years now but it’s still hard to find that colour in anything but high end designer fabrics.
So what do you think? Are you loving bluer greens lately?
And remember, you heard it here first.
