Okay...full disclosure, I am lifelong Philadelphia Eagles fan and I am BEYOND excited that they are in Super Bowl LII! With that out of the way, my personal social media accounts have been a sea of green. Ahhh...divine inspiration for this blog.
Shades of green have really stepped out of the design shadows as of late. Furniture, accessories...sure...but I am talking about deeper commitments. Bathrooms, offices, even kitchens are boldly going where few designers have gone before. I think it is gorgeous! Above Studio McGee anchors this lovely room with a green velvet sofa. This is layering perfection!
Shiplap has officially taken over the world (shout out to JoJo). This bathroom takes the trusted trend a step further with a gorgeous hunter green paint. Kate Marker married the green with a soapstone farm sink, black/white cement tiles and an oak vanity. Yes please!
Sasha Simon (a.k.a. Lola Rio Style) has a fun fashion inspired Instagram site. Her emerald green coat goes perfectly with a black Antigona Box Leather Satchel. I spy Sam Edelman pumps.
Bring the outside in with florals. Creating a gallery wall with botanticals has become a very popular trend. Above is the NYC home of Vera Wang president Mario Grauso. He pairs the prints with a cozy grass green sofa. For similar prints, visit Birch Lane.
Yep...another Studio McGee image. I have a small obsesion with this new design firm (hint...blog coming). For the Vineyard Parade Home, Shea was able to take some chances with a deep, rich green paint for the floor to ceiling cabinets. The contrast of light floors and countertops makes these cabinets sing. The light oak hardwood floor pairing is a favorite of mine.
The above is a GORGEOUS bone inlay chest of drawers in emerald. This versitale piece could be used to dress up a basic entryway. It is also tailor-made for a nursery or child's room. Of course, given the price point of bone inlay items, I would put it in a prominent spot. It is too pretty to hide.
Sarah Richardson has forever been one of my favorite designers. I love that her jumping off point for any and every room is a bold fabric. She set the tone in the above bathroom with a vibrant green fabric that dresses up the space and draws your eye to the outside view. It pairs so nicely with the sublte mint paint and marble flooring. Sarah slays as always!
Dress it up or go causal with hits of green in accessories or even a signature dress.
Go big or go home! This Celerie Kemble Schumacher Hothouse Flower fabric has always spoken to me. Call it an updated 80s flashback...but I LOVE THIS pattern! The above bedroom, done by designer Tobi Farley, was featured in Traditional Home. This image shows the amazing versitility of green. Various shades, within the pattern, work perfectly with a soft pear green velvet ottoman, cream-colored shiplap, dark hardwood floors, and chair legs. Bold and beautiful!
And then there is Natalie. This dress is stunning! Enough said...
This image demonstrates that even a few accessories can dress up a space. The moss and chartreuse colored decor elements give the space a pop and pair beautifully with neutral furniture pieces. The chest of drawers is drool worthy as well.
I hope you are inspired to test the waters with your own hits of green in your home and closet!
