Green with Envy

Pinch Me, It's March!
Spring is ALMOST here.
Other than Madness, this month, I think of the color green! 
As in grass, trees, shamrocks and... Rooms! 
Yes, I am so over brown and ready for some new growth and bright colors.

It seems like just yesterday that Emerald was the color of the year. 
Maybe because it is still very much on the scene, and for good reason.
“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

Mixing small amounts of various shades of green can liven up even the most neutral spaces.

Something a little more bold, like a green sofa, is perfect for an eclectic home.

 Green window panels would be the perfect amount of green to give a room a glamorous feel.


Bringing the outdoors in is another way to incorporate green.
In this space I designed a few years back,  I covered the floor in astro turf.
It was perfect for the durability and comfort of a kids play room.
It's very easy and inexpensive too!

 The kitchen is always a great place to add some green.
Here we used glass tiles behind the range to accent my clients decor and hand painted island.

Some of my favorite green items that I would love to see in my home, or a clients!
