Color of the Month - Green with Envy

Green with Envy

As we cling on to the last days of summer, here's some green to keep things lush and summery. 


Porcelanosa Glaze Wave Tile

We love a tile with different shades and this mosaic tile gives you four colors to play with. 

Pro Tip: Mosaic tiles work great for kitchen backsplashes but can also be used for shower floors; the increase in grout lines lessens the chance for slipping. 


Pottery Barn Seward Braided Rug

Braided rugs can be retro and even stodgy but this one, with it's mix of colors, adds a modern flair.

Pro Tip: Be sure to get a rug in a size that matches your space; it doesn't need to go fully under all the furniture but should at least tuck under the front legs. 


Sherwin Williams Paint in Mint Condition

Pale green is a great option for a bedroom or bathroom where you are looking for tranquility.

Pro Tip: Paint manufacturers not only have sample sizes but some have peel and stick samples; make sure you're putting samples up in the room the paint will be used so the lighting is accurate. 


Lamps Plus Gordy Ribbed Ceramic Table Lamp

Traditional doesn't have to mean boring; this table lamp might seem run-of-the-mill but the shape of the base and colors create interest.

Pro Tip: If you're looking to get really far away from traditional, use mix-and-match table lamps; different styles in the same color.


Mitchell Black Cabbage Palm Wallcovering

We love adding whimsy to a space and this wallcovering would certainly do the trick.

Pro Tip: Don't own your place? You can still utilize wallcovering, if you have smooth walls, look for a peel and stick product. Or install on a smooth substrate mounted to the wall. 


Mariposa Alabaster Platter

Platters are a must for serving but an interesting platter also makes great decor.

Pro Tip: Platters take up a lot of storage space. If you don't have a lot to spare, consider donating old platters to rotate in new.
