It’s Easy Being Green | Green Decorating

freaking-out-over-your-paint-colors

 

Sorry Kermit, but green is the “it” color and green decor is everywhere. (and yes, of course, this is in honor of St. Patty’s Day).

I have always considered myself to be a “green person” and I will always absolutely love any shade of Chartreuse/yellow-green. It’s one of those colors that goes with everything. After-all, it’s the color of the first buds in spring and every year, I get heady when that happens. I have to confess, however, that emerald-green is not my favorite, even though it was the Pantone “color of the year” for 2013 (marketing bs.) And the other thing is that I am loving blue more and more and more.

Please enjoy some of my favorite rooms and images which focus on green and a couple of boards that I made on Polyvore. (I have a lot of other images that are not on this post as well.) I was inspired by Jennifer from The Pink Pagoda Blog. She just joined and confesses to be addicted. (very, very easy) It’s really fun. Now, Jennifer is very talented. It takes her ten minutes to do a board. Me? hmmm… not ten minutes. More like hours. But I’m still learning how to make the images a good size. It’s a bit tricky. BTW, Jennifer is running a Polyvore Project Decorate contest on there, if you are interested in checking it out and/or her beautiful boards. Also, if you follow her, she’ll follow you back.

This is a revised version of the first board I made. I love all of the different shades of green together.

The new World’s Away Chinoiserie pieces in Jade (and other colors) caused quite the stir at last fall’s High Point Market.
