In honor of earth week... I am doing a post on everything green.
I personally think that green is underused in decorating, as both an accent color and as a main color. With it being spring (the time of year where everything is budding and blooming) and with it being earth week, I thought it would be perfect to do a post on green...
As you all know, I like to think of my look as a little bit rustic, a little bit french farmhouse, a little bit New England.... all with a dash of fun.
And there are a ton of ways you can achieve this look with the color green.
Check out the gorgeous tablescape above. I just love the layered look of the different sized plants, in different sized pots, haphazardly scattered about. Don't they look great on that distressed wood table? This is a perfect example of how a look doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.
And if you're looking for a way to incorporate green inside... Just look at this fabulous emerald dresser.
We all know emerald is a big color this season. And, actually, it was voted "color of the year". By who? Well, who really knows who votes on these things. But point is, emerald is super in right now.
And it's perfect for spring. Lively. Radiant. And lush.
So pick up an emerald statement piece (even if it's just a pillow or a vase for a side table). And try incorporating it into your home.
And last but not least.
If you're looking for a green DIY project. Try out this cool moss graffitti that is popping up everywhere.
Put in blender: one can of cheap beer or 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, a few handfuls of moss, one teaspoon of sugar. Paint on wall and mist daily until it grows.
I haven't personally tried this out myself, but it seems like a fun weekend project and you can even give it a go with your kids.
Plus, it's double the green... Good for the environment and the color!
So moral of the story is.... if you haven't incorporated green as part of your home... this is the week to give it a try!
