The Magic of Red and Green


“I tried to express through red and green the terrible passions of humanity.” – Vincent Van Gogh


Red and green, while usually considered staple colors of Christmas décor, are actually quite complementary and can be used in varying hues for a bold, modern interior or exterior look at any time of the year. Pictured here is an abstract kinetic light painting I created and paired with outdoor furniture featuring vibrant plum red and light, bright green against a lush backdrop. For more ideas of how to pair these dynamic colors in your décor see the following articles:

For cinematic inspiration, see the 2001 French romantic comedy Amélie and read more about the colors used in this film in the article, “Understanding Color in the World of Amélie Poulain,” which can be found at https://decortips.com/homes/understanding-color-in-the-world-of-amelie-poulain/.


For culinary inspiration that’s not related to Christmas, check out this beautiful blog post from five years back titled, “MEXICO: ITS FOODS AND CULINARY DELIGHTS” available at https://lauraaloveland.blogspot.com/2015/05/mexico-its-foods-and-culinary-delights.html.


Mockup created using the #WallApp #OhMyPrints. I have no affiliation with the website but enjoy how it lets you visualize the artwork in a variety of interior spaces.
