The Most On-Trend Family of the Year

Shall we dish about the most popular family in town?  No, not the Kardashians.  The most popular color family.  As a Nashville Color Consultant, it’s my job to know the movers and shakers in the land of Color.  Let me introduce you to the Green sisters:  Lime Green, Kelly Green, and Emerald Green.

Let’s start with the youngest of the girls, Lime Green.  Lime is a fiesty thing – youthful, fresh, and energetic.  She likes to hang out with the younger crowd and enjoys mixing with lots of other bright, young hues like Lemon Yellow and Fuschia.

Lime loves a good time with her pals, but also likes babysitting her nieces and nephews.  She prefers a laid-back, informal lifestyle and a home that reflects that.

Kelly Green is classic, self-assured, and a go-getter.  Although she stays on top of the trends, she is a timeless beauty who likes to spend her time with other classics like Royal Blue and tried-and-true Neutrals.

Kelly lives a busy life with a thriving career and family.  She’s active in her community and is a staple in the social column of the local newspaper.

Kelly loves entertaining and opening her home to her friends and family, so she wants it to look welcoming and updated while still being kid-friendly.

Emerald Green is an elegant and sophisticated creature.  She is the more mature of the sisters.   Emerald is rooted in the past, but always fashion-forward.

 Emerald enjoys travel and formal entertaining with her black-tie friends like Sapphire Blue and Jet Black.

Emerald is confident in her choices and the place she has established for herself in life.  She isn’t swayed by passing fads, but prefers a bold, yet timeless and elegant style.

Within any color family, there is tremendous variety and depth.  The beautiful thing is, as different as these color sisters are, they go great together!

So which sister is your BFF?

I can’t pick a favorite – I love just about ANY green (although I’m partial to Kelly and Lime…shhhhh!!!) Love these colors, especially with the navy. Yummy!

I just knew I was going to open this post and see my picture! However, I have to say the Green Family is my second favorite family. Love the post, Kristie… your writing gets more creative all the time. So proud of you, my friend.

Old Limey is my sweetheart. She just makes me smile, since she’s so fresh and optimistic about life! And I wish I had her energy! Wow!

I’ve never been a fan of green but I do love the Kelly Green thing that’s happening right now.

LOVE this post!

I love all greens. My sofa and chairs are a cross between Lime and Kelly and I love changing the pillow colours from time to time…from pink to blue to purple. LOVE green.

Emerald Green ALL THE WAY. My bathroom is done, and its in sapphire blue and crisp white. My foyer will be black and white with punches of green to tie into the living room. Then I still have like 10 more rooms to go…its a 1905 house that is in need of major restoration….so keep the color ideas/party coming!

I like the way you put this post together – it’s fun and informative! I’m a green lover, so all of these work for me, but Kelly’s been in and out of my life the longest. I’m enjoying a few hits of lime here and there more recently – vibrant and full of life 🙂

I love all the greens. My dh is a RED lover but I like it in small doses. For instance I have a set of Red sheets. (Flannel not satin!) I was considering a red sofa, since that is my dh’s favorite seat in the house. Which Green could I pair with a red without turning my home into the North Pole?

I like the emerald. PS – The new Country Living is all greens w/cream and jet black. I actually leafed through it in the checkout line. Nice. For green-black, or for pairing with green, I also really like Annie Sloan’s Graphite.

Love this post. Any recommendations for a good kelly/emerald paint color for a dresser for my boys’ room? Kind of John Deere but not.
