That Certain Perfect Green

I guess St Patrick's Day made me think about it, but for a while now I've wanted to add that certain green to my home decor.  You know the perfect green I mean.  It looks so good in a lacquer finish, in velvet on a sofa or chair, or on a wall.  That certain green on furniture is the statement piece in a room, or the pop of color with draperies.

These are my current green obsessions and inspirations.

I love this table.  Should I paint my kitchen table this green lacquer? 


Add a green settee?


Paint my bamboo chairs green?


Cover my wing chairs in velvet and nail head trim?


Paint my front door yet again?


Maybe change the color of the shutters instead?


Change my draperies again?  Why not?


Add this Goddess Chandelier from Currey and Company

Paint a room green?


Paint inside some bookshelves?


Or, just take the easy safe route and add some pillows?



Could this be my green?

So many choices and so many projects . . . . . . . 
What would you choose?

We're Welcoming Spring at Our March Sale at the CoOp

Well Mother Nature fulfilled my wish for snow.   
But, we're all about Spring at Buckeystown Design CoOp this month.

Here's what I'll have.

What says Spring more than a rabbit and greenery?

How clever to turn this huge champagne crate into a bench!

The stenciled bucket is made from old tin.  It can stand alone or hang on a door or wall.

This vintage princess dresser is a soft grey.  The mirror is beveled.

It's hard not to keep this cow weathervane and the lightening rods.

This antique European hamper would make a perfect coffee table with storage.
Don't miss the candle holders made from porch balustrades.

An antique military chest is another coffee table option.  
 I have several vintage stenciled restaurant trays.

This clock is only decorative.  I'm considering hanging one on the outside of my garage.

Who knew that a hay fork could hold your jewelry?

I'll always have barware.  This cart can be a bar or a mobile kitchen island.
