Last weekend we were all reminded to “spring forward,” which is a phrase I just love, not only for the extra hour of light each day, but also for the reminder that warmer weather is around the corner! It’s no wonder green is so popular in the world of interiors - who doesn’t want to be surrounded by the color of gorgeous spring days?
All greens are good in my opinion, but right now I’m loving the deep, rich greens you’d find in the rain forests of Washington state. Dark, and little moody, while still being utterly green and not at all muddied, or grayed out. Like the penny round tiles enveloping this chic bathroom by designer Michelle Smith.
I’m usually a Benjamin Moore or Sherman-Williams aficionado, but after seeing this deep Verdant Green wall by Behr, especially paired with crisp black and white, it’s now on my list of paint colors to try.
Green wallpaper is also a must, and I can’t think of anything prettier than this Malachite mural wallpaper by Black Crow Studios, one of my favorite sources for uniquely chic wall coverings.
Just to prove green on the scene is no flash in the pan, this vintage living room with a gorgeous green velvet sofa against a coromandel screen, was designed by American fashion legend Norman Norell in the 1950s. In my book, the great Norman Norell can do no wrong, and this chic room is proof.
And I can’t think of a more masterful use of green than this recent interior by Ken Fulk. The lacquered emerald walls simply burst with exuberance and life. This is a room I would be very happy in!
Of course we also have St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, so if you are in need of more green inspiration, please visit my Emerald City Pinterest Board!
