It's been a while, but I thought I would go back to my color series. To pick up where I left off, the next color on the wheel is green. Walls and papers and curtains. . . so rich, so chic. When green interiors are done right, there's nothing better. The color can be moody, bright, warm, crisp, refreshing, exotic and nostalgic. I'm overly obsessed with malachite and specifically the Fornasetti paper. Used it in the Holiday Hall at work and have to admit, the holidays on the Decorative Home floor hadn't felt so fresh in a long time. My next challenge is to use the Hinson & Co Banana leaf paper. It will happen. You'll see. I remember my mother had a stash at one point and used to love imagining how with that paper the Jungle Book could be brought to life in an interior. . . .
Another distant memory, for one of my first jobs I worked at a small stable, cleaning stalls and training horses. The woman I worked for had a few racehorses. She took great pride in naming them and told me that one horse she had named Forty Shades of Green, I always loved that name. Brings to mind wonderful things. Another good name, My New Kitchen, because they decided to buy a racehorse rather than to update their kitchen.
Looking through these green interiors I'm feeling a bit envious of Spring, looking forward to more green surroundings, not just indoors.
As always, Thanks for reading.
