crisp green accents

No matter what the current color trend may be I think that I will always prefer an accent of green over any other color. It is just so fresh! I love that it can be both sophisticated and playful as well as both soothing and bold. And when paired with white is creates a crispness that I don't think can be found with any other color combination.

Whether it is a bowl of green apples in the kitchen or fresh greenery on the kitchen table.

or in a spring place setting. I just love it all!

Oh. I agree. Green works so well in most spaces. It's so calming.

{Many times after my cut flowers are long gone I leave the greenery in the vase}.

The kitchen in the top photo is to-die-for. I love how they've paired the glamorous chandeliers and the rustic outdoor lanterns.

how do you always find such lovely collections?!
i come away from here with little hints of how I can spruce up my home in simple ways & i really appreciate that!

these green accents are especially inspiring to me- i'm ready for a little fresh reminder that spring will be here... eventually. (even if it's only 3 degrees outside right now)

I completely agree! Green is perfect on so many levels. Love the table setting in that first photo. Very inspirational!

Oh, I have such a soft spot for green too. I have it in my living room and kitchen, and while I sometimes feel like I am ready for a change, looking at it in photos like these reminds me of how much I do enjoy it.

You are my fave... said...
