{verte + blanche}

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
