A celebration of all things green on Earth Day 2016

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I would have a little tribute to the color green. While a pale, almost neutral green is common in design, it takes guts and color savvy to really sock a punch to a room with green. These are a few great examples where the designer is a green maven.

This room has such a fun vintage feel without the burden of all of grandma's clutter. Keeping all of the other major pieces a stark white really showcases the green color.

I LOVE this room; my eye was immediately drawn to the Egg Chair in that gorgeous shade of green!

I think I'm drawn to this room because it looks like it was inspired by the Farnsworth house. The green accent mimics what is going on outside the structure.

The designer of this bathroom understands color and balance. The green is allowed to shine against the white while a little punch of orange provides great contrast.

Speaking of orange and green – being fearless with color can be intimidating but rewarding and well worth it when done properly. The balance of the orange and green is so refreshing and exciting.

Also, chocolate brown looks fantastic with green.

This calm traditional room probably would have seemed like the same old, same old without that brilliant hit of green provided by the duvet and throw pillow.

Here the green tiles add a bit of whimsy to an otherwise very modern kitchen.

And finally, who says wreaths are only for Christmas? A living wreath planted on a moss ring provides lovely greeting at your front door.
