Lately I've really been crushing on the color green. I've been adding small doses of it around the house and love the organic vibe it provides. And green is a wonderful color to accent with any time of the year. It's somewhat of a neutral color and blends with so many different things. 

If you, too, are loving green these days, here are some favorite ways to decorate your home with it.

30 Ways to Decorate with Green

Green Dishes

It's no secret that I'm a bit of a dish hoarder and I happen to have a few green pieces in my collection. The green goblets add a nice pop of green to our table at Christmas. They belonged to my mother-in-law and we love to use them during the holidays. (Similar goblets found HERE.)

  1. Angie, you are so speaking my language. I love anything from nature and feel like you can never go wrong with green. It's a nice neutral when you are tired of white or gray and just want a little color. On top of that I also love that you collect vintage pieces and display them in your home. Botanical prints are a favorite of mine and I'm definitely pinning this for future use.

  2. Right now, just a little green is indoors... A little in some faux rose and peony stems, a couple of plastic bins for storage, and some teal green drinking cups in our kitchen. However, that being said, Angie, my daughter absolutely LOVES green so I've sent her this post in an email. :) She has the cutest green armchair that she uses in her apartment bedroom to sit in and read, or to work at her computer desk. Mom is always finding green kitchenware to send her... ;)

    Fun post and happily pinned to several of my Pinterest boards for you and our readers,
    Barb :)


I love hearing from you, and your comments make my day!
