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 !
