My love of Art Deco pthalo green

Do you ever fixate on a colour then discover it pops up in your life in all manner of ways?

I’ve had a thing about Gen Z yellow, neon pink and celestial blue for some time now and, as such, Colour File HQ is peppered with objects in them, from posters with a pop of yellow and rugs with neon woven into them through to milky-blue opaque medicine bottles.

My latest fave is this verging-on-minty, Art Deco-esque light pthalo green. It is so punchy, so positive, that when I see it I feel that no mountain – physical or metaphorical – could ever be too steep to climb.

I recently painted my front door in it in the form of Dulux Forest Falls (here, looking super-bright in the sunshine) which means I get an injection of dizzying colour excitement every time I cross the threshold of Colour File HQ.

I also managed to find this top in the same green. Joy of joys. And as a fan of ‘same against same’ colour themes, I’ve taken great amusement and joy from standing in front of it, chameleon-like, for a fully immersive green experience. And I get the feeling I’m not done yet – I feel a green shelfie coming on………
