Gaga for green! And four giveaways!

Good Sunday evening to you. Hope you have had a wonderful weekend, today was a lazy day and boy did it feel gooooood. Long overdue, and so wonderful!

?This is a post I “found” in my draft box, one that somehow never got posted!! And there were too many pretty rooms for this to not be shared. In addition,? I am offering a handful of wonderful giveaways in celebration of mothers everywhere (we all know by far, the hardest job there is)! All details for giveaway at bottom of this post.

I am having a serious green crush lately. I mean I have always loved green, but I am loving it on a whole new level now. I was at someones house as a guest and have to say I fell head over heels over a dark green paneled library she had. If I had known her for more than four hours I would have certainly asked to take a picture! It got me thinking about how fabulous (and sometimes underrated green rooms are)

And not just? your light and soft greens, but GREENS. That means those stunning rich mossy, forest, dark, jade greens. If you are gonna do it..might as well go all the way right? I have visions of moss green velvet in my library, with acres of green bullion fringe adorning them. Then I see a leopard ottoman somewhere in the mix, get the picture? So today’s post is paying homage to all things beautifully green. What do you think? Here’s a look at all the? many shades of green, all so very beautiful…….

?There are greens, and there are greens….and this sumptuous green chinoiserie is just on another level! LOVE! Winfield House

?Love the idea of an all white patio with gorgeous lime green accents, Veranda

Hot off the presses, Peter Rogers shows green in all its gorgeous glory! AD

?This is one of my favorite colors of green, a beautiful moss green….gorgeous! Traditional Home

Gorgeous painted library in a green I wouldn’t have thought of but boy, does it look fabulous!

? Leave it up to Scott Snyder to take such a bright green and make it look this beautiful!

Green with envy

Good morning! I first want to answer a question which many of you have asked about my house and if there was a previous home on the property. Yes, there was….a charming one at that, and one we had originally intended to keep, work around and renovate. However after six long long months at the drawing board it was not proving to be cost or design effective so down it went. The good news is that the property, was already very mature with a beautiful understated mature landscape so fingers crossed that when our home is finally done, it will look like its been there a while!

Green……..I absolutely love green, enjoy occasionally wearing green, have touches of green in my home, love cooking with green vegetables and basically try to “go green” when I can but must honestly admit there is room for improvement on that front:) That said, one area I love seeing green in, is the home…..I love green rooms, green furniture, greenery, green wallpaper, green paint…you get the picture! I personally lean towards a paler, grayer green but very much appreciate different shades of green when done well. ?So today I pay ?special tribute to all the glorious greens, of which there are so many shades, from the palest celadon to the darkest jade green almost black, each with its own character and style…… green can be used successfully in just about any decor from the most opulent traditional homes to modern and transitional to fabulous outdoor space. Green is here to stay and is a gorgeous accent color…..let me know what you think, if you too like green and you know I always love to know if you have a personal favorite!
