Soft shades of green that evoke nature are in season.

  • Paulette Diamond, ASID, vice president of the International Association of Color Consultants North America says, "Use soft greens against neutral earth colors of sand, rock and soil, and use along with accents of deep, rich terra cotta." She says "a neutral green (between the poles of yellow and blue) creates a mindset of peace and tranquility. The more blue-based a light shade of green, the more refreshing it becomes."
  • Color trendwatcher Catherine B. Stein, president of the Color Council, says Kelly green is the color to watch. Having strutted down the runway several seasons ago, it's now showing up in accessories and is used as a fashion accent color for interiors.
  • Stein also notices a movement away from yellow-greens toward an interest in mint.
