Are Green and White Rooms Coming Back Soon?

freaking-out-over-your-paint-colors

 

Recently, a lovely reader named Jennifer sent in this comment on the recent post about how to create the perfect summer home. That post featured a lot of blue and white.

Here’s what she said:

 

Lovely post. I have always loved blue and white, but recently I’m gravitating toward green and white! I’d love to see a post about green and white rooms with sources, as they are harder to find than blue! Happy Summer!

 

Oh wow! Green and white rooms?

 

And with sources? Difficult? I mean, I was practically breast-fed green and white! Green and white rooms are part of my genetic code.

Although I don’t fault Jennifer for not grasping this. Green and white IS still out there, but there isn’t the glut of it as there is with blue and white. That much is true.

It is not difficult to do a green and white room. I mean, all you need is a room that’s basically white furniture and add in some greenery and it’s now a green and white room.

 

But, green, I think is the easiest color to work with and here’s why.

 

Northeast United States satellite

Here is a satellite map via Google Maps of most of the Northeastern United States. And what do we see as the predominant color?

 

Of course! We have talked about green in numerous posts on this blog. I’ll post some of them in a bit.

 

However, despite what some may say, green and white is as classic as a golf ball in the grass. :]

There are lots of ways to incorporate green in our rooms. Above is a saturated green in George Washington’s green and white dining room Mount Vernon. That’s going pretty far back.

But, what is that shmata (Yiddish for rag) on the window?

I thought I would have a little fun. So, I went over to Lynn Chalk on Etsy and did a little photo editing on Picmonkey. Did you see the Picmonkey tutorial, here?

Of course, there are hundreds of options in terms of fabric for the curtains.

 

Sometimes when I’m looking for a fabric, I’ll go over to Decorator’s Best and punch in what I’m looking for.

Ohhh! They’re having a sale through the 27th. Well, who isn’t having a sale! It’s Memorial Day Weekend. Please check out the Hot Sales Pages for the skinny on some of the best sales this weekend.

And, it’s easy being green (an ode to Kermit the Frog) is a post with lots of terrific green rooms in it.

 

But, sticking with the walls, Mural Sources has gorgeous more affordable green and white Chinoiserie murals.

And the last image for inspiration is this elegant New York space. by Jean Paul Beaujard. It’s not strictly green and white, but I do love the wonderful velvet drapery and elegant furnishings.

 

Parting words:

 

When doing green and white rooms, I think it’s always good to add some accents of other colors. And, it’s also very beneficial to add black. And I always love to vary the shades of green. In addition, there’s almost always some brown because of the stained wood tones.

Below is a widget for inspiration.

I added a few pieces that are not green or white, just to show some things that I think work well together. Of course, I wouldn’t put everything here in one room.

Please have a wonderful holiday weekend.

    I always look forward to your posts, Laurel. It’s a much needed injection of beauty.

    My question to you is- can a house that is reasonably well lit- but entirely by cold north and east facing light (and that is filtered through a lot of forest shade) handle green on its walls?

    I live in a gardeners paradise- but the inside of my home is so DRAB. I would love to freshen it up but I fear any green would be to heavy for the space. And the lighter greens always scream either “80’s lime!” or “pea soup!” in my general direction.

    Perhaps I should leave it as an accent color in my throw pillows?ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 9, 2019 - 7:51 PM

      Hi Julie,

      Yeah, I’ve had this issue before. And, it’s crazy-making. In addition, it depends on the size of the room, height of the ceiling and what else is going on. The only thing I can say is to make a few samples, but also consider painting the walls a warm, clear white like Simply White or Cotton Balls. They may STILL look a little green, but it’ll be pale like celery.ReplyCancel

    I actually have a sample of that Cole and Son’s topiary wallpaper hanging in my office. I’m totally in love with it and hoping to redo my office in it later this year.ReplyCancel

  • Lily - May 28, 2019 - 9:54 AM

    I’ve been waiting for this post. 😀 I keep taking notes every time you talk about green.

    I’ve been struggling with selecting a curtain fabric for the dining room. Can you offer some suggestions for managing the fabric choices? The walls will probably be Behr Planet Green. Room accents will be greens, gold, and some orange. The adjacent rooms are yellow and teal (kitchen), med. blue (living), and purple and orange (loft).

    I have mission chairs that I want to cover like parsons. I want cushions. Well, my ischial tuberosities want cushions. I’m thinking cover in green ticking with a bold print on the back. One bold print on 4 of the chairs and then a different one on two “host” chairs. For the bold prints, something like a Morrocan trellis and a chinoiserie or Morris-style print. I’m going to paint the chairs all charcoal or gold or something depending on the fabric.

    There’s a bay window to treat. I’m taking inspiration from Miles Redd’s green dining room for his mom (quite like my room but I don’t have a fireplace). I’d prefer curtains to shades. All of this explanation for a simple question. I’m trying to decide if I should do the curtains in solid green (and then should I match the paint to the curtains or not bother?), the ticking, one of the bold prints, or something else entirely. Any thoughts?

    That topiary wallpaper is so gorgeous! Thanks as always for all the eye candy.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - May 28, 2019 - 10:38 PM

      Hi Lily,

      I’m really sorry. But I can’t offer this kind of help. I wish I could, but I would need to see what you are talking about and that is not something I do any longer unless it’s for a blog post.ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth Gregory - May 28, 2019 - 1:57 AM

    So refreshing after so much blue and white. Blue and white can be harsh, and cold, and has just been so dominant for several years now. Am ready for more secondary colors. Green plays very well with other colors, and you provided some top flight examples. As someone who inherited a lot of brown furniture, I appreciate this post.ReplyCancel

  • Thel - May 27, 2019 - 11:54 PM

    Oh my goodness I love the green dining rooms! I’m trying to redo my dining room now and I’m so inspired. I would love, love, love a post on how to pick out dining room chairs, especially what makes a dining chair comfortable to sit in over a long lingering dinner. Nothing makes me happier than when my dinner guests want to hang around for another glass of wine or coffee, but my current chairs have everyone shifting uncomfortably before we even serve dessert.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - May 28, 2019 - 10:34 PM

      Hi Thel,

      I guess the most comfortable dining room chairs are upholstered. But I also had these wicker chairs and I used an 18″ pillow for the back. Really comfy.ReplyCancel

      Ballet is very difficult if one is first learning it as an adult. But, if one took it when they were young for a number of years, it’ll all come back. It’s the best exercise ever!ReplyCancel

  • Beth - May 27, 2019 - 7:25 PM

    Love this post so much!!! The George Washington photo, is there was trend towards the monochromatic, ie with wall and any of the picture trim being same color? I love the look, but wasn’t sure if a fad.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - May 27, 2019 - 8:06 PM

      Hi Beth,

      The same wall and trim color has been around for a long time. Although, there has been a resurgence of it in more mainstream situations. But, most would still consider it to be outside of the norm. It’s really not.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer Johnson - May 27, 2019 - 2:27 PM

    WOW Laurel, that was the fastest turn-around time I’ve ever seen on a blog post! Thank you so much! I couldn’t believe it when I saw the headline and then my note! Gorgeous rooms as always; I really love looking at all the scrumptious photos you posted. I will enjoy looking through all your sources as well! The first thing I ever bought through your post last year was during the Nordstrom sale. Funny as it wasn’t a home item. May you have a wonderful week, and beautiful summer. Please be sure to let me know how your health is doing, as I will keep you in my prayers. Thank you again, Much love, JenniferReplyCancel

      Hi Jennifer,

      Oh, you’re welcome. I’m always up for great ideas for posts and this is a terrific topic. Thank you for inquiring. I have been feeling very well since my medication changed and I’ve been taking twice a week ballet classes. I’ve gotten much stronger as a result.ReplyCancel

  • Celeste - May 27, 2019 - 12:41 PM

    I love this post and I love green. I struggled looking for a green comforter that wasn’t all HEY CHEESEBURGER IN PARADISE WHO WANTS PALM FRONDS!?! I gave up because it was too cold to wait. I got some bland thing at Costco.

    😑.

    I had fallen in love with that Schumacher lettuce colored paper when I first saw it on your blog and just realized two days ago it won’t fit in our dining room because we are papering the bottom below the rail. We think the pattern is too long to work.

    I’m considering this Cole and Son wallpaper. But I don’t know yet. I want a paper with a lot of green and flowery nature-y.

    I’m still thinking on it.

    Lovely post and I’m full of covetousness looking at it.
    I am so happy to be in a home I can make my favorite color. TEAM GREEN FOREVER.ReplyCancel

      Hi Celeste. That wallpaper is in another post on here somewhere and they did it in panels and it looks terrific that way.ReplyCancel

  • Jeanne - May 27, 2019 - 10:32 AM

    Laurel, Do you have a source for the botanicals in the Ashley Whittaker dining room?

    Green is my favorite color. This post plus combining prints, and rule of thrids for large walls are my favorites.

    Thank-you!ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - May 27, 2019 - 8:00 PM

      Hi Jeanne,

      I’m sorry, but I don’t off-hand. One of my tricks is to take a screen shot (or right click and save as) and then isolate one of the images, by cropping it. This gets done on a desktop computer. I would make a duplicate so that you still have the original. Save all of that to your desktop.

      then open up https://images.google.com/

      Drag the isolated image into google images and you might get lucky.

      If not, try googling “Ashley Whittaker green and white botanical prints.” (but not in quotes) You might get lucky if they were in an editorial somewhere, it might pop up that way too.ReplyCancel

  • Amanda - May 26, 2019 - 10:41 PM

    Really beautiful, thank you!

    The Serena and Lily picture with the green silk curtains….I have coveted those for YEARS. But can you give us your opinion on the placement of the rod on the left? I would do it differently but I’m not a professional – I’m so curious to find out what you think. I don’t have beautiful wordwork in my home currently, but someday I swear I will and for some reason I find myself worrying way too much about where other people hang their rods. Ridiculous, I know.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - May 26, 2019 - 11:25 PM

      Hi Amanda,

      Yes, the rod is wonky but the window frame is also very unusual and extremely tall. So, it’s possible that is as high as they could go with the length curtain they had. OR, they just stuck it up there, for the photo. That’s not even a real rod it looks like. It’s quite skinny and looks like a rod for cafe curtains.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - May 26, 2019 - 11:23 PM

      I couldn’t agree more. And if some of those gray rooms had a healthy dose of green, they’d look a lot better, I think.ReplyCancel

  • Maggie - May 26, 2019 - 3:07 PM

    You have made my day Laurel! I feel as if I’ve been just waiting for this post but too afraid to ask amid the blue and white fervor and lest you think me crazy ( which I am for green and white). Thanks for such wonderful inspiration on this combination. Your work plus Mark Sikes’ are my two favorites here. I think all these fabulous shades of green really make dark wood tones shine and take some of their heaviness away. The greens from your paint palette are all lovely. I add my thanks and appreciation to our soldiers and veterans on this holiday.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - May 26, 2019 - 11:22 PM

      Hi Maggie,

      Thanks so much and I totally agree about the greens and blues with the wood tones. And the wood tones add some needed heft to blues and greens. Just like the tree trunks!ReplyCancel

  • Lauren - May 26, 2019 - 1:47 PM

    Good morning, Laurel.

    You won my heart today with this post about green and white. I could never settle on a choice because I loved so many different colors, but when emerald became Pantone’s Color of the Year in 2013 I was smitten. It has remained my favorite color since. (Give me an emerald over a diamond any day!)

    My home is done in various shades of green. Two loveseats are in dark emerald velvet. The living room rug is a dark emerald with plenty of cream to bring in the chairs and walls. Other shades abound throughout the house.

    My bedroom has neutral walls but a dark emerald bedspread; the oversized canvas print above the bed (because I live in earthquake country) is a lovely print of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks–which has a good amount of green and is a painting I fell in love with when I first saw it many years ago.

    I have two sets of dinnerware, one is vintage jadeite.

    In other words, I love green, all green. It makes me calm and happy and it is so soothing to come home to each day.ReplyCancel

  • Heidi - May 26, 2019 - 1:41 PM

    I remember daydreaming about a green and white kitchen back in the 80s. Never got one!

    I’ve always wondering why green and sky blue aren’t seen together much, since they’re so natural. Maybe because they’re both bright?ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - May 26, 2019 - 11:20 PM

      Hi Heidi,

      I see greens with lighter blues fairly often. They might also be mixed with other colors. If you take a look at Mark D Sikes portfolio, I think he has some examples.ReplyCancel

  • Hollie @ Stuck on Hue pillows - May 26, 2019 - 1:07 PM

    I didn’t used to be much into green (too much green trauma from the ’90s, probably), but it’s been creeping back into my zeitgeist the past couple years and I’m really into it with blues, especially, and even purples or pinks/corals.

    Also wanted to mention that Williams-Sonoma does sell that gorgeous triptych as a set, but it’s the same price as the three individual pieces. I almost bought it several months ago, but it’s HUGE and just a little too large for my space.

I would like to buy from your links so U get credit, but I want a different recliner selection from Pottery Barn than those highlighted.

      Yes! I will. You could click on a link for a recliner and then go and buy one napkin ring and I will make a few pennies. I have a client who got two leather recliners and loves them. And, I just happened to go to PB in White Plains the other day and they had one sitting on the floor in black leather. So, of course, I sat down in it. Very comfy and the quality, terrific. Please note, however, that the cushions on the leather pieces do not flip.ReplyCancel

    Haven’t thought of green and white as a scheme; these examples are lovely! I have, though, used green as a neutral for most of my thirty-something years of decorating my home. Green drapery, carpet, shades of green for wall paint. Is there a color that doesn’t play well with green? Now that we’re empty-nesters I’ve changed my neutrals to whites, creams, and sand, but the green days were great for the foundation of a color palette. Thanks for a great post, Laurel!ReplyCancel

    Hi Laurel,
    Thanks for the great post. It’s very appropriate right now because all the rain we’ve had has made everything outside so green & lush. My yard has never looked better.
    This post brought back an old design memory from the late 70’s & early 80’s. It was my first home. I put up a white & green trellis pattern wallpaper in my guest bath.
    It was so easy decorate with. Any color I used as an accent looked great with it.ReplyCancel

    Laurel, I LOVE your posts!
    This is a question about an all white house! my house was built in 1881. It is small with those orangey heart of pine floors. It is sort of dark and has small rooms. In your opinion, do you think BM white dove cut down by 50% (flat for walls and semi-gloss for trim)will be a good choice and if so, would you also use this for the ceilings? I have soooo many white swatches on the walls and I just can’t decide! I am in Wilmington., NC. I will try this but was really wanting your opinion and didn’t know if you use the same color for the ceilings when using white dove??? Thank you for your time!ReplyCancel

      I wish I could give you the answer that you seek. Unfortunately, I’m not there to see what’s going on. And, the other thing is that on an average Sunday there are some 20,000 readers.

      I love that too. S & L made a decision to largely do away with colors that aren’t coastal, for the most part. And, definitely no silk. Maybe they’ll change that one day? Or maybe this is it for them. We’ll have to see. I still love the company no matter what they do, however.ReplyCancel

  • Parnassus - May 26, 2019 - 7:48 AM

    Hello Laurel, Those dowdy green and white rooms of the ’50’s are far enough in the past that we can start using the color again, although perhaps an actual “revival” might not be appropriate yet! You have convinced me of the value of green with your photos, which all look so inviting. I still don’t quite approve of apple-green paint in the main rooms of a house, and some of the more jungle-y patterns are perhaps a bit much.

    You may have given me a hint for my apartment. The floors are all green and white marble, and so green might be a good accent color. I do have a few green-glazed items, and am sorry now I passed on certain architectural pieces, such as glazed balusters. Carved panels often have green or red borders, so these might integrate well, although I am a bit afraid of starting to look like “the ladies’ restroom at the Oriental Thee-ay-tur.” Also, I love verdigris, and have a few bronze pieces, although perhaps they read more as dark than as green.

      Yeah… I’m thinking of that awful “country club green and white” with the Wilton rugs and lattice on the walls. I think that persisted well into this century, however. It probably still does.ReplyCancel

    Hi Laurel,

    I love this post because I’ve always been a green girl–green walls, green couches, green dishes. Even when my sister moved into her own bedroom when we were in high school, I chose green for my walls. I have found it a bit hard to decorate around, so this post is a great help.I was especially happy to see the chinoiserie mixed with the green–it’s such a pretty look. Thanks for all the wonderful info–you’re the best!
