I found myself softening towards the sage-y green in the 2000s, but still couldn't go there. I'm finding that nearly 20 years later, I have started to introduce a little bit of green.
My parents bought me this collection of Louisa May Alcott books a long time ago - they probably qualify as antiques now. I love the green color and the sentimentality, and of course, Little Women is a classic that I love. The colors work well with my bedroom.
This is my bedskirt that I made and added a hint of green to:
Here is a bowl that I found on a trip to St. Vincent de Paul's. I won't use it for food, but I think it adds a nice pop of color to my blue dining room.
The candles are a shiny beaded green.
My other green in the dining room comes from these glass pebbles. It's subtle, but I love the color.
Finally, on my front porch is this cute little pillow that I bought at Target last year:
I love the look of plants in every room because they just add so much life to the room. I've slowly introduced the green color into other aspects, and I like how it looks. With apologies to Kermit, it's getting easier to be green in my house!
