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

?Love the rich green paint here, looks like its painted over beadboard, makes it feel warm and cozy with all the paintings, Celerie Kemble

Love the soft muted celadon green in this charming bathroom, Barbara Westbrook

?Mary McDonald transformed this space into the ultimate girly girls dressing room…..in all its green glory!

?This gorgeous sitting room high in the sky is done in the palest silvery celadon…so luscious! Scott Snyder

?Gorgeous bedroom done in soft greens with a transitional feeling, Tobi Fairley
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!

? Adore the crisp clean vibe here of this mostly white room with pretty green accents

?Bunny Williams took a dark paneled room and gave it new life with a beautiful moss green shade

?Green in the kitchen is a real statement and Michael Smith nailed it with this one if you ask me!

?

?Green is always a sure thing for an elegant sun room, its the color of nature after all!

?

?

This room feels so fresh, current crisp!? House to Home

?Janet Rice created a beautiful green and cream cocoon of a bedroom
?Adore every singe thing about this room..its as beautiful as it is cozy and inviting!

?I like the way the green on the bed is the sole punch of color, it makes the room feel fresh and crisp, Homes Ideas

Somehow this works…the green, the purple the blue and whites, gotta hand it to her, Katie Ridder

?Lawrence Boeder makes a bold green statement in this interesting sunroom
Really love the bold play on color and pattern here, it just works! Sherill Canet

Gorgeous pale green toile bedroom, to me, this will always be such a classic timeless look. Elle Decor

?Love this rich green library that belongs to Dick Ridge…so great looking!

Stunning sun room, so uplifting, fresh and crisp!

Designer spotlight: Scott Snyder

Hi there, can’t believe it’s already Wednesday! How is your week going? I am a little under the weather, and fighting either a virus or bad allergies, allergies are bad around here. Today’s post is one that warrants taking a little “break” from whatever you are doing. Trust me on this 🙂 The first time I spotted a room done by Scott Snyder, I knew we were meant to be friends (at least virtually for now). Well, he just doesn’t know it yet:) This is one talented man, I cannot tell you how many times I have been mesmerized by a room and sure enough when I look for the designers name..there it is, Scott once again!

Based in NYC and Palm Beach and established in 1984, his work takes him literally all over the globe, it is no surprise given his limitless talent, he travels the world in pursuit of creating incredible one of a kind interiors. Those kinds of rooms that hold your eye for a long time just so you can take in each delicious detail. So today I pay homage to the brilliant work of Scott Snyder. Ready? Feast your eyes on this…..

Forewarning! This post has the potential to induce serious heart palpitations, pace yourself people!?

Still breathing….deep breaths, deep breaths, drool read on………

Amazing, don’t you think? What do you think of Scott’s work? I think he has enough talent for an entire small planet. He just “gets it” and I love that he obviously has a real love for chinoiserie, blue and white porcelain and Asian art. Then you throw in his clear love of flowers specifically orchids, love for blue and ample use of? velvet…and we are kindred spirits indeed!

It is to surprise at all that he was named one of Architectural Digest’s top 100 designers. Scott, you are incredible at what you do and this was a true visual feast for every one of my senses. Guess what! Scott, as I just discovered, has a blog…click here to visit him. ? Hope you enjoyed this and thanks as always for stopping in!

Calling all blue and white lovers!!

Good morning! Hope your week is off to a good start. Over here, I have a list a mile long of things to get busy cracking on (mostly house related) so no rest for the weary…it’s already another busy week. When I start my morning with a healthy dose of blue and white, I just know its going to be a great day. Every now and then I have to post on blue and white, to give me my regular “fix” of this scrumptious combination. It just never gets old……..what can I say!!
?I am also super excited to have added some truly exquisite new pieces (below) so this was a perfect post to tie it all in. Hopefully some of these images are new to you, while some I realize you have seen…….they are just too pretty to not include. The truly wonderful things about blue and white is that literally it goes with every single color. I dare you to find a color that it doesn’t work with. Impossible!! How about you, has blue and white-itis? struck you too? Happily there is no cure in sight. So lets take a look at blue and white at its very best………
?Just some of my very favorite blue and white goodies!!
Ahhhh, this is sheer blue and white perfection accented by soft earth tones, Scott Snyder

?William Eubanks used blue and white to? perfection in this ultra fabulous room!

Guess where and the following are also from my home…proof of my undying love for all things blue and white!

My newest ginger jars “put to the test” and they passed with flying colors:)
This kind of left me speechless…had to include it but how to describe this? A shrine to blue and white? An overdose of blue and white? A room you don’t want to be in during an earthquake? Yes to all the above!

I must share with you the newest members of my blue and white family! I just added them to my online shop and I have to say these are some of my most favorite pieces! Absolutely stunning. What I love about them is that they have a lot of white in them so they are a beautiful contrast when using them as part of a grouping…..take a look!
