Today’s Friday Fav is a unique color combo that I’m in LOVE with for Summer 2012 weddings! It’s fresh, vibrant, and cool: Aqua and Kelly Green!
I have always been a huge fan of Kelly Green, for some reason it makes me happy, it is a bold color and reminds me of summer. With the popularity of using neighboring colors on the color wheel to create an ombre effect, I thought that Aqua was the perfect hue to accompany Kelly Green.
Michael Miller (see below), makes the perfect table linen for an Aqua and Kelly Green event:
I was very surprised when I decided to pair these two colors how difficult it was to find them used in a wedding or even any type of decor item, but by looking at the collage of the colors together, I think they compliment each other nicely and create a really fun pallet for a wedding or any type of celebration, especially as summer is quickly approaching, the trees are in full bloom, everyone is headed to the beach or a pool for memorial day and these two colors just keep turning up everywhere… but not necessarily together.
If you are planning a wedding or party and looking for that third accent color, especially for flowers, white is the perfect neutral color to accompany this eye-catching combination. You can never go wrong with white… it is timeless and tasteful, clean and refined.
