Favorite Greens, Layla Style
March 15, 2010
Here’s another friend participating in the “Favorite Greens” series, this time it’s Layla from The Lettered Cottage, who we all know and love as a fabulous decorator, designer, and all around DIYer extraordinaire ! She and her husband Kevin write all about fixing up their ‘Lettered Cottage’ and I’m a big big fan of her style. I had the pleasure of meeting the very talented Ms. Layla at the Blissdom Conference in February and we became fast friends.
Take it away Layla !
“Green is my favorite color to decorate with. It’s the color of growth, and has such a wonderful way of intensifying a rooms sense of adventure. I don’t think I’ve ever met a shade of green I didn’t like, but here are some of my favorites…
1. Soft Sage
A clean, colorless background allows these soft sage cabinets to really pop!
From the pattern on the window treatments, to the pattern on the bedskirt, I just love how fresh sprout green looks when paired with white.
3. Dusty Olive
I adore the way this old, green door (re-imagined as a headboard) takes this all-white room from okay to out-of-this-world!
This tub just wouldn’t be the same without that petite, pistachio-colored stool snuggled up next to it.
5. Dusty Pear
This pretty, dusty pear-colored floor visually blurs the lines between outside and in by mimicking the green grass just beyond the back door.
6. Mint Green
I think the grass green beds up against a mint green wall is magically delicious!
I love the addition of seafoam green stripes to white beadboard walls in this kitchen. Such a fun way to add a little extra charm to this already spectacular space!
A big thank you to Layla for participating in this series ! More featured bloggers coming up tomorrow with their take on this inspiring shade.
Are you fixated on a favorite green this spring ? Is is kelly, lime, fern, or celadon ? Play along in the fun and tell us all about it !
