I have to admit that I went off the colour green for awhile. I’m not sure why, but for years I just felt it wasn’t ‘me’, and I’d gravitate towards blue and neutrals. But for one reason or another, I’m back on green bigtime. Not so much khaki green, and not an insipid spring green, either. I am just loving bold, bright green at the moment. Like this amazing chest of drawers designed for Century Furniture by Jonathan Adler:
I love the combination of blue and green, but these drawers are my favourite because they incorporate another of my faves of the moment: greek key and geometric patterns.
Green wallpaper makes a bold statement in a small space like a hall or bathroom: (and of course more greek key in the mirror!)
house and home
Green wallpaper in the back of bookshelves or to back kitchen cupboards is a great idea, too. The geometric design here is so modern and fresh, I love it.
I like this green upholstered bedhead, and appreciate the way the straight lines of its design counteract with the off-centred round mirrors. I can’t decide about the big jade lamps, though. Are they beautiful or ugly? – (or ugly-pretty for ANTM watchers!)
Thought I’d throw in this bit of green loveliness – green Christian Louboutins are definitely on my wish-list.
It doesn’t take a lot of colour to make an impact. Love the emerald green pop of the chair and lamp in this dream-worthy dressing room:
can't remember this source sorry!
Another little pop of green (below). I’ve had this picture stored for ages, the saarinen tables and black-and-white rug offset the otherwise classic style of the room in a way I like. And I always love a double-height living room!
Green is a really fresh colour for a kitchen:
The famous hallway belonging to Chloe Sevigny lined with green trellis wallpaper:
But of all the shades of green, Kelly Green is my favourite. I absolutely love this green bedroom: the tall padded headboard, the green-trimmed linens, the beach-style tables and glass lamps, it’s fun and serene at the same time.
It’s all about texture, as well as colour. The wet-looking green vinyl on the chairs, the raw zinc of the table, the softness of the rug, and that light fitting! It all works together so well (below).
Finally, something on my current must-buy list, a monogrammed tray (in Kelly Green of course- email me for details).
