Hello dear readers, it’s time for another post in my Pin Away Wednesdays series! Since March is just a little over a week away and spring is just around the corner, I decided to share highlights from my Decorating with Green Pinterest Board. Green is my favorite color, and I love all shades. Here are some of my favorite images of green decor and decorative accessories from the board. Pin away!
Decorating With Green
I’m “green with envy” for all things green! On this board you will find various shades of green vintage collectibles, decorative accents, green furniture, and green rooms.
I am a lover of vintage garden style indoors and out. Green accents evoke quintessential garden style in any room.
Cabinets and shelves packed full of vintage green collectibles, dishes, books, gardening items and knick-knacks definitely make me green with envy!
Various shades of green were very popular during the 1940’s and 50’s. Avocado and olive green were trendy in the 60’s and 70’s, while “seafoam” green was the green hue of choice in the 1980’s. Hunter green and emerald green gained popularity in the 1990’s through the early 2000’s. Today all shades of green are popular, and several different shades are often used together in the same space.
Vintage and retro kitchen items are highly sought after at flea markets, vintage markets and antiques stores.
Jadeite is popular among collectors along with green transferware dishes and pottery.
I only have a few pieces of vintage green transferware but I am always on the lookout for more.
A collection of green books is an easy way to add green to any vignette.
I adore antique and vintage chippy furniture painted all shades of green.
In my experience authentic green glass bottles and demijohns are hard to come by, but there are many beautiful new bottles available in home decor stores today. I just love green glass!
All the green goodness in this picture is just too much! Bring on the spring green!!!!
A gallery wall of predominantly green artwork is so creative and elegant. I just may have to start searching for old paintings with lots of green to create a similar gallery wall! A collection of DIY framed leaves or botanical prints is another great choice for adding green through artwork.
I love how the green pops in this pretty room. Green velvet is one of my favorite textiles!
Oh this Frenchy green velvet chair and ottoman… SWOON!
If you don’t want to commit to a green walls, try bringing in shades of green through throws, blankets, pillows and drapes.
One of the simplest ways to incorporate green into a room is through the use of indoor plants and greenery, fresh or faux. House plants have made a huge comeback and are widely popular in farmhouse and boho-chic style homes. There are also some beautiful indoor plants and trees for use French Country and cottage decor. For more ideas check out my post: Beautiful Indoor Plants for Farmhouse, French, Country, and Cottage Style Homes.
Adding pops of green through plants, moss spheres and topiaries is simple, classic and elegant.
Now is the time to hit the antiques stores and flea markets for all things spring and green. Vendors will often have booths styled with lots of green and garden accents this time of year.
Last year I also enjoyed welcoming spring with bits o ‘ green. Check out my post for more early spring decorating ideas using green decorative accents.
Green is the new black! Some decorators consider green to be an essential, neutral color in design these days. What is your opinion? I do keep elements of green mixed in with my decor year round. This week I will be starting to adding more green around my house for spring through plants and textiles. Working on this post definitely has given me some new ideas and now I can’t wait to see the house and garden spring forth with little bursts of green over the next few weeks!
On Monday, March 4th I will be joining several blogging friends for the “Sharin’ o’ the Green” Blog Hop! There will be even more green decor ideas to explore. If you love green too, don’t forget to stop back by to check out all the gorgeous inspiration. You can also find even more lovely green photos to pin by following my Decorating With Green Pinterest board too.
