Friday Favorites - Green in Design

Green is back! Can I tell you how happy I am about this? And not for the reason you may think. I don't actually care if it's in style, but I love it, and all the time it was "out" I've had the hardest time finding pillows, fabrics, bedding... literally anything in green. What I found was once it was decided it was "out," fabrics lines and stores like Pottery Barn, Wisteria and Ballard Designs discontinued it. All of it! So I would look at a rug or a pillow and within the 3 or 4 color options, green would never be one of them. When I was changing my master bedroom bedding two years ago, I had such a hard time that I ended up buying my comforter on Ebay! It was a (no shocker here!) discontinued green one from Restoration Hardware! 

But now it's back. It's been named Pantone's Color of the Year and I'm seeing it more and more which thrills me to no end. Granted, the Pantone color "Greenery" is a brighter, more apple green than the one I'm drawn to, but I truly love any green. And, the fact that it's been deemed "back" in any shade means we will see more of all of it going forward. I'm still in the middle of making decisions on my own family room re-do and for once, my procrastination has paid off! I originally planned to do it in blues, but now I may do a mix of the two. I adore blue and green together! Green seems cheerful and restorative, especially after the long winter so I suspect that as spring gets closer, we will begin to see it a lot!

I'm such a fan of Brooke Giannetti, and she uses green a lot in her spaces. The subtle touches here are just perfect!

And what if you are not a fan of green? Or, maybe you like green, but you don't want to change too much or make that big of a commitment. If you have neutral or white interiors, you can incorporate green with plants or flowers.

This timeless kitchen is in a folder I have a tear outs from magazines - and I'm sure it's 10 years old but I still love it! Design by Andrew Raquet.
