Spring Green

Between the coming of spring and St. Patrick’s Day, March is definitely the the month of green! I think more than any other color, green exudes calmness and renewal. Mother nature didn’t go wrong when she chose it to be the predominate color of the land surrounding us. That’s also why it works so well in interiors - it signals to our eyes that our environment has everything we need to thrive, even if that environment is 100% man-made.

Every shade of green is lovely in the home. For example, you might think chartreuse green might be too bright for a bedroom. You’d be wrong! I could wake up happy every morning in this Kelly Wearstler bedroom.

Lime lacqueruered walls. Serene yet joyful.

While we are on the subject of green walls, I don’t think they come much prettier than emerald silk hand-embroidered wallpaper by de Gournay.

I’ll leave you with an image of the very first thing that comes to mind when I think of green and interiors, Dorothy Draper’s infamous “Brazilience” wallpaper designed for the Greenbriar Hotel. Nothing speaks more to the vibrance of nature!
