Last week I promised I’d take the weekend to clear the clutter and color out of my rooms and get back to my all-white palettes as a way to determine what the next direction might be. (Now that I write that… don’t you wish you could do that with LIFE!? Yes. But I digress.)

Not surprisingly, in my living room I’ve gone back to a whole lot of white with … green. (You saw that coming, didn’t you?). Not only my favorite color, green harkens in spring for me like no other. (Do you have a color that does that for you?).  I’ve also got a little tropical travel coming up, so I have a feeling that may be influencing my sensibilities. Whatever the reason… it’s time to hit the refresh button!

Because green is a cool color, I think mixing prints in this color (that goes for blues and purples too, obviously) is much easier, and I’m tempted to add a few more patterned green pieces to the pillow I already own. What do you think your spring refresh color will be?

    I am in love with this color. I’m so glad we live in the Emerald City, so we get to see it everyday. I can’t wait to see what pieces you pick for your place.

    Truthfully, I rarely stray from neutrals but as I see Emerald and other greens cropping up around the web it’s starting to grow on me. It would be awesome to see a post on how to wear green if you’re not a green kind of gal. I’d love to see which pieces you pick. Awesome post. 🙂
