Décor Inspiration: {verte + blanche}


Green and white for an early August night . . .

{Have never lived in any places with green, either on the walls or as accents, and yet always seem drawn to it in the homes of others . . .}

41 Notes
  • You have no idea how badly I want to sit in one of those tufted green chairs…ahh…so lovely!

  • this is PARASISE!

  • i painted my kitchen green a year ago, after 8 years of filthy, off-white walls.

    my first pick was a bit ambitious (a little too “avocado”), but then i settled on a cool lime-sherbet one. and i love cooking in there more than ever.


  • momo — thank you — giddy is a great compliment :)

  • Oh, I have to steal that first photo. I love those windows and the firplace right beside them. Love it! Daisy!

  • Green and white. That is adorable combination )))

  • Simply wonderful! my first visit to your blog and im all giddy :-)

  • Green goes with everything. Think about how a plant never looks out of place in a room. It’s the one color that always seems to work.

  • You always get me. Every time. Just breathtaking!

  • beautiful interiors…the green teamed with the white is so crisp and clean but cosy too!

  • oh these are to die for!

  • That first image is just stunning. The ornate mantel, the gorgeous ceiling and crown molding, those windows (wow!), and the deep, deep, deep-tufted delicious green chairs. What a splendid, memorable room.

  • Love these, Miss BFF Glam! Green and white is so fresh, I always love the combo.

    Hope you are well this week!

    Happy day,

  • I loooooove GREEN. These rooms make me smile.

  • I adore white rooms, the pop of color the green gives is absolutely fabulous.

  • Green is a lovely colour for interior design. It seems as though the last decade, we’ve seen more than enough sage/ silver sage (shades I adore, but which have become boring when gracing every flippin’ page of every flippin’ pottery barn/ crate & barrel catalogue!). I’m thrilled to see your examples of brighter greens; thank you.

  • Such a beautiful yet relaxing setting! Ahhhhh :)

  • Its beautiful! So alive and in touch with the outside :-)

  • myramyra — sounds like the perfect backdrop for polaroid candids and safe and alluring is a great way to describe this combination.

    For some reason, I always think my favourite colour is Blue, but when I see Green I am so drawn to it. I love how it’s used almost as a neutral colour in these photo. Your eye seems to absorb the colour rather than it popping out.

  • I love the second picture. I could almost see the positive energy going around in the room.
    I added your beautiful blog to my links !



  • this color scheme is very very soothing..

  • You have a lovely knack for finding astonishing images!

  • GORGEOUS top photo!

  • One side of my bedroom wall used to be that exact green (of the chairs) and during parties my guests were always drawn to it. Ended up being the spot to take polaroid candids. I think the color itself is safe and alluring.

  • “Green” is my favorite color, so needless to say….I adore it all, especailly those two chairs in the first photo!…..Heidi XO
