In Honor of Earth Day.

*** Forgot to post this yesterday so I'm a day late:)

I'm not much of a green fan when it comes to home decor. It's not that I dislike it, but I'm definitely more drawn to shades of blues and grey. In fact, once upon a time, I painted my office green and promptly painted a soft shade of blue-grey within 24 hours! Lesson learned, always look at your floors when considering paint colors... against the green paint they looked orange!

In honor of Earth day, I'm rounding up some use of green in home decor that I could definitely live with. Yes, I know that's not what going green is suppose to mean but let's just pretend.. I missed out on the St. Patty's day post. Ha!

I looove this mirror paired with the green chest of drawers.

Did someone say ombre? This is one trend I can't get enough of.

I know it's just a pop of green but just when I think I'm over chevron prints, I see this and I love it all over again. What a great mix of pattern and color!

Beautiful light, table, white space and ahhh... those green chairs can come home with me any day.

I think my Dad is going to finish up the dresser in the next couple of days so I hope to share some more shots of the bedroom makeover this week! Plus, we really need to get going on the dining room. So much to do and so little time.. isn't that always the case?

Have a great week everyone!
