I make no bones about my love of the color green in decorating. I will fully own up to the fact that I use it often and maybe too much for some people. I don’t care though. I’m not a quitter.
Meg from Green with Decor emailed me a couple months back and asked if I wanted to join in on a St. Patrick’s Day blog hop featuring green decor.
Ummm….hello….it’s like I was made to do this blog hop.
Of course, I said yes, but also told her that since we were moving to the 70’s Landing Pad, I might not have very many “new” green decorating tricks to share, but I could share my favorite green decorating moves. She was cool with that, so here we are and here are my favorite green decorating moves I’ve done. If you’re a fan of decorating with green like me, you can hop around to the other blogs featuring their green decor at the end of this post.
Decorating with Green
I feel it would be a sin to not honor the very first project that sparked my love of green…
Had it not been for this beauty, I may never have discovered just how much I loved green in decorating. Or it would have taken me a long time. This single lamp, as ridiculously corny as it sounds, is what helped me figure out what my own style truly was – not what a magazine or Pinterest said it should be. And moving on…
This vignette is one of my favorites, mainly because of the vintage cowboy blanket that’s a family heirloom in my book, but also because of how random everything is, yet it worked so perfectly together. I thought for sure putting a cowboy hat and blanket against a gold confetti wall and throwing in a bold black and white graphic pillow and green velvet pillow would be a mistake. I’m so glad I was wrong though.
I have likened this piece to a mullet – business in the front, party on top (instead of the back). The green malachite on top is actually wrapping paper.
This IKEA Tarva three-drawer dresser got turned into a bar cabinet – with a little help from green paint.
Obviously, malachite and I are pretty tight. This malachite tray wasn’t made with malachite at all – just paint. And it was so easy.
Hands down, probably, so not really hands-down, but you know what I mean, my favorite color combination is green paired with black and white – like in this modern french country chair makeover.
Not my favorite shade of green, but I won’t turn my nose up at it, this DIY jadeite was another easy project.
My favorite green velvet pillow also pairs perfectly with a plaid blanket.
The minute I saw these green drapes I knew they were destined for my living room. I love the combination of the green against the coral as well. Don’t look too close at my rug though – it obviously needs to be vacuumed. 😉
This green and white cane inspired accent wall gave a punch of color and pattern to my previously all-white bathroom.
This banana leaf watercolor print helped to tie in the green accent wall in my bathroom. These watercolor prints are actually FREE printables you can find HERE!
Obviously, my love for green runs deep! You?
