Taking the Bait...Green Envy 3!

 Erin go Bragh!  I forgot to wear any green today (hoping not to be pinched) , so I decided to try and redeem myself by posting some of my favorite images using green as an accent color. This sofa is fabulously antique french yet with a strikingly modern shade of green velvet.  Love the combination!
 Below, the ottoman is a rich jewel toned green lost in a  sea of other jewel tones.  Nanette Lepore sure knows how to mix colors.  From fashion straight into her own home.  Image courtesy of Elle Decor.
Love the wall color and the hint o green in the lamp below.  The art is graceful and subtle.  Black and white always looks great on a green wall.  Image pulled from House Beautiful.

Many fun things happening here in my town this day....Have you heard that our Chicago River has turned green?  ;)

Love the green sofa as well!
I'm working on a project right now- trying to combine modern and victorian....it's a fun challenge!

Dear Mable Cakes,
I found for you chartreuse velvet pillows at:

They are a steal at 32.95.
Enjoy!

Julia, you always collect the strongest and greatest images and put them together so beautifully. (and creatively for St. Patricks day!)
