Sarah’s Favorite Greens

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

There’s one gal that makes me laugh like no other and that’s Sarah over at Thrifty Decor Chick.  We all know and love her (or should I say lurve her) for her incredible knack at turning the thriftiest finds into the most fabulous decor !  Have you seen her recent staircase revamp ?  Fantastic!  It made my little DIY heart go pitter patter.  

Sarah was another lady I had the pleasure of meeting last month at Blissdom.  I look forward to her insight on home decorating every single day, and there’s no power tool this gal will ever be afraid of.  My friends, please welcome my friend Sarah – Ms. Thrifty Decor Chick !

Mrs. Limestone’s Favorite Greens

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

One of my daily reads is the adventures of Mrs. Limestone over at A Brooklyn Limestone in Progress.  I came across her blog last year and I like to pretend I live a New York east coast life vicariously through her.  :-)  Mrs. Limestone always has the best tablescapes, party ideas, and her renovation journey is incredibly inspiring ! She has flawless taste and amazing photography of her travels with her husband – I’m sure Mrs. Limestone will be a fast favorite of yours too.

1. Green Hydrangeas have always been my a favorite.  Its the perfect fresh spring time color (even though I do know that they don’t turn green until summer). 


2.  I’m obsessed with diagonal stripes lately. The stripes keep it simple, the angle makes it fun.


3. My all time favorite lotion and beauty splurge is Bvlgari’s Au de Vert.  Ridiculously overpriced but smells oh so good! 


4. Sweet juicy watermelon.  Enough said? 


5. The perfect shade of green that copper turns after its aged.  I can’t walk by a patina roof without drooling. 


6. Not quite green, not quite gray, not quite blue – Benjamin Moore’s Silver Marlin is the color I wake up to every morning.


Thanks so much to Kate for asking me to participate in this fun series!

Thank you  Mrs. Limestone!  I too adore that BM ‘Silver Marlin’ – it’s a color very close to the paint in our master bathroom and it’s so incredibly soothing – the perfect shade for a relaxing retreat. 

Do you have a favorite green shade of paint?  Do share !
