Green Goddess

I keep thinking about green. I never really realized how much I use it in decorating, until others point it out to me. Maybe I love it because it is the color of boxwood, or maybe I love it because it makes every other color pop so well. In my mind green is a neutral. I am going to circle back to green later next week, but I thought I would share my initial post on what is surprisingly (even to me) my favorite color in decor. It just works, and it makes blue and white look that much better!

I am going to take you back to my first post on green, and you can later contrast the similar beauty and different use of the color in the coming week. Happy Thursday, Happy Weekend, and Go Green!

green walls and white sofas_TB

This is a sitting area designed by Daniel Romualdez in Tory’s Burch’s penthouse at The Pierre Hotel. One of my all time favorite rooms. Love the juxtaposition of the blue and white ginger jars against the deep green walls, and the leopard pillows on the white sofas. Photo source: Pinterest
