Ah, St. Patrick's Day. While the evening festivities are certainly a draw, I also see it as an excuse to explore a colour that doesn't factor very heavily in my wardrobe or decor: green.
So, in honour of my green dress, and those lucky few already raising a pint this afternoon, here are a few spaces that make it easy to be green:
This room by Colin and Justin is certainly a little too bright green for my taste, but I admire how boldly it embraces the grassy shade to make the space feel fun, young and modern.
This kitchen, also by C&J, is a subtler way to bring a splash of fresh green into your space. Soft green cabinets are perfectly accented by the oh-so-carefully staged floral arrangements and green apples.
The green cabinets in the kitchen, as spotted on House & Home, ratchets it up a notch, but I kind of love them - especially when paired with the wallpapered ceiling and the industrial, exposed lighting. Not to mention those cute mismatched schoolhouse chairs.
This room, sourced from Katy Elliot, is a much subtler take on the shade. A darker, muddier green, it's more in line with my preferences at the old Casa Speedy - and it keeps the room from feeling like it's St. Patrick's Day, or Christmas, year-round. Plus, I love how the dark hue is balanced by all that fabulous white moulding.
This dining room, spotted on Desire to Inspire, is simply stunning. The green wallpaper. The mid-century modern chairs. The casual leafy centrepiece. I love it.
