Color Cravings: Shades of Green

I’ve having a color craving, or two… You see it’s this palette and it has me going a bit ga-ga at the moment. Chartreuse, Mint, Clover, Silver and White. A delicious medley for Spring, which will be here before we know it. J.Crew and Anthropologie have color cravings too, seems we share many of the same… This palette offers a lot of versatility. Consider this: when you’re out in nature, green and blue are the two most dominate colors in most parts of the world. Sky and Earth. When you observe the colors alongside them, flora and fauna, everything coordinates. If your palette is like the one below, you can mix in some blue. Or add some black. Maybe a dash of cantaloupe (you will see an example of that in the chair upholstery shown below) or rose. That’s why it’s a versatile color mix, at least according to me.

I would have taken the time to link to each product shown above but it’s all basically from the new Spring catalog so just click here and you’ll find most of what you’re looking for. If you get stuck, comment below and I’ll post the direct link.

Oh green! Imagine these hues living together in a room, say your office? I love green in an office or entryway. I find this palette refreshing, welcoming, and a bit preppy romantic which I love. When I think of the bathroom, I tend to lean towards blue, gray, black and white, pinks, neutrals, lavender but the more I look at the Anthropologie shower curtain {shown direct north} I’m thinking green tones definitely work in a bathroom too but I’m still not completely sold. And though they are nice in a bedroom, I tend to see these greens more in a guest bedroom for some reason that I can’t explain… but I’ll try. I don’t think this palette is cozy and that’s good for a guest bedroom. Why? I’d rather my guest room be polished, simple, clean and tied together – not necessarily cozy, warm, or overly relaxing. I love my guests, but I don’t want them to stay locked in their zen den or worse, never leave the house!

Where would you like to see this color palette in your home? Do you hate it? Do you like it and why?
