Green and white for an early August night . . .

{Have never lived in any places with green, either on the walls or as accents, and yet always seem drawn to it in the homes of others . . .}

green is good, esp. when the green touches comes from plants.

One side of my bedroom wall used to be that exact green (of the chairs) and during parties my guests were always drawn to it. Ended up being the spot to take polaroid candids. I think the color itself is safe and alluring.

For some reason, I always think my favourite colour is Blue, but when I see Green I am so drawn to it. I love how it's used almost as a neutral colour in these photo. Your eye seems to absorb the colour rather than it popping out.

Wow! Didn't realize i could like green and white so much!!

{this is glamorous} [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

myramyra -- sounds like the perfect backdrop for polaroid candids and safe and alluring is a great way to describe this combination.

donna -- happy you followed heidi's link

franki -- thank you -- lovely of you to say.

jessica -- thank you :)

Such a beautiful yet relaxing setting! Ahhhhh :)

Green is a lovely colour for interior design. It seems as though the last decade, we've seen more than enough sage/ silver sage (shades I adore, but which have become boring when gracing every flippin' page of every flippin' pottery barn/ crate & barrel catalogue!). I'm thrilled to see your examples of brighter greens; thank you.

Fabulously Lizy [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I adore white rooms, the pop of color the green gives is absolutely fabulous.

Leslie [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I loooooove GREEN. These rooms make me smile.

Happy day,

That first image is just stunning. The ornate mantel, the gorgeous ceiling and crown molding, those windows (wow!), and the deep, deep, deep-tufted delicious green chairs. What a splendid, memorable room.

oh these are to die for!

AnastasiaC [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

The Lil Bee [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

You always get me. Every time. Just breathtaking!

GrannySmithGreen [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Green goes with everything. Think about how a plant never looks out of place in a room. It's the one color that always seems to work.

momo [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

angelgrotton [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

i painted my kitchen green a year ago, after 8 years of filthy, off-white walls.

my first pick was a bit ambitious (a little too "avocado"), but then i settled on a cool lime-sherbet one. and i love cooking in there more than ever.

oneshotbeyond [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

this is PARASISE!

You have no idea how badly I want to sit in one of those tufted green chairs...ahh...so lovely!
