Fresh in green


Perhaps it's the abundance of rain that has left the entire landscape in the most brilliant shades of emerald, but lately I've keep finding myself drawn to bright pops of green in decor.   (Like these umbrellas, or these barstools) There's something just so irrepressibly fresh about this shade!



Lee Kleinhelter always manages to incorporate bright bursts of colour with more traditional pieces and styles for a look that is fresh and fun. These photos from her home previously featured in Cottage Living are so inviting. A beautiful burst of fresh colour without being too loud or intimidating. Crisp kelly green always has a bit of a preppy edge to it, don't you think?

This is fun - looks like the bedroom in my first apartment circa 1974. Well better, actually, but brought back memories.

DB - that sounds super fun! I bet it was beautiful!

That sounds gorgeous! I love rich leather in bright colours.

SA - how appropriate for a 'Kelly' :)

Johnnie - well I guess a classic just never goes out of style - I say perhaps bring it back!

I just discovered your blog. Love it! I thought you might like to see my new green nightstands. I love the freshness too and I think your "preppy" description is perfect!

Green is a favourite I like the table net to the bed that looks great modern but kind-of vintage at the same time and the perfect shade of green thanks for this!
