Olive Green

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

I found myself buying a sleeveless olive green military style jacket this month to wear from now through fall. I’ve always loved the color, in fashion and interiors too. Olive tree branches are a go to botanical for me, we have five in our yard and every other month I’ll place branch clippings in a vase, they last several weeks and look beautiful on the dining room table with the light filtering through them.

Pantone has included “Dried Herb” as part of the fall fashion palette, it’s an earthy and muted shade of olive green so it’s not surprising we are seeing olive green popping up among some early fall collections.

Olive is a common color in my area, much of the landscape is planted with olive trees and so many of the glass wine bottles are this color too.

You can’t go wrong with a dramatic deep green curtain, we have Scarlett O’Hara to thank for that.

Olive green is divine on cabinets from contemporary to traditional, it pairs well with brass, nickel, or oil rubbed bronze hardware. A muted green is at the top of my list in cabinet colors for an upcoming remodeling project.

New Bed Collection + Giveaway

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

Today I’m excited to be sharing a new line of upholstered beds over at Apt2B, designer Kyle Schuneman is at it again this year releasing a line of upholstered beds after the success of last year’s launch of his sofa collection. Kyle has made his mark as an expert in small space decorating as a designer, prop stylist, and author with his signature colorful classic style.

I love that the entire bed is upholstered, not just the headboard, and the midcentury style legs add to the sophistication of each piece. All are custom made in Los Angeles, California.

Three styles, the Cooper, the Palmer, and the Carter, are available in 30 different fabric options to customize them to fit your individual style. Consider any of these three new beds as a statement piece for your bedroom.
