Refreshing Spring Green

For todays post I thought we would look at gorgeous decorating ideas featuring fresh green. Green... I love it! Especially these days when the snow is slowly melting after such a long white winter it's so nice to be seeing green sprouting up in the garden.

By the way, anyone watch HGTV Top Ten series this week? I absolutely loved the interiors and can't wait for next weeks show.

This image inspires me... I love the combination of green and white and natural wicker. So pretty! And I am so ready to hit the patio, get into my gardens and enjoy the great outdoors.

And if money was flowing how about a patio like this one? The ultimate in luxury living... white leather barcelona chairs on the patio. Obviously this is not PEI.

Let's look at some kitchens and eating spaces. I think the green counter stools really add punch to this kitchen.

Pretty green accessories and pale green glass tiles.

I love banquettes and this one accented in green is so inviting.

Pretty green drapery panels.

From Moving Designz Home & Cottage a lovely green table display.

These images are of the restaurant Mr Greenjeans and feature soft tones of green. Sarah Richardson Design made over this restaurant on one of the episodes of Design Inc. Anita and I had lunch here when we were in Toronto in January.

Onto looking at some livingrooms accented with green.

White, green and a soft creamy shag. How dreamy... cool.

Black, white and green, what a fabulous combination.

White, green with accents of pink. I love the feature wall with its horizonally hung wallpaper. Now this is a pretty room.

Love the green, brown and cream striped wallpaper.

I found this Drama wallpaper online at the Home Depot site. I think this would be fabulous on a feature wall.

Now for a look at some very beautiful bedrooms.

OMG, love love love, how perfect for the cottage?

Here are a few really pretty green fabrics. I bought this fabric for a future design project that I don't have yet as I just couldn't resist the pretty colour and pattern. It will make beautiful drapery panels and perhaps a toss cushion.
A nursery for a sweet little baby boy in chocolate and green. And one for a sweet little baby girl in pink and green. How adorable are these rooms?

I first saw the above image featured as an advertisement for bathroom cleaner or something like that in Canadian House & Home. It was the chair that really caught my eye and the fact that is looks very similar to my upstairs bathroom. About a month later it was featured on Sarah's House Episode 1. The colour combo just looks so fresh, green and happy! I love her work.

And lastly some pretty white Easter Lilies.
Happy Easter to all. Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!
