color my life {emerald} green with envy

It’s been a while since I did a post on my favorite rooms. You might remember me mentioning my obsession with emerald in a post recently, well, I have long loved this color so forgive me if you arent into it. But  allow yourselves one look at these spaces and you’ll see why I’m green with envy!

Be it upholstery for chairs, a pretty wallpaper pattern, a collection of earthenware  {LOVE the pups in that one}, kitchen cabinetry or a lamp shade, this hue of green instantly makes a room feel so alive and vibrant.

Totally glam too! Remember the green glass bottles I scored at a thrift store last year? They are the inspiration for my bedroom decor and I wish I could capture how gorgeous they look in when my sun-flooded room.

I just cant get enough of emerald hues in my life. I want to pair it with cobalt, navy and white in my bedroom. Which reminds me that I need to get on that project STAT! How would you use this color in your home and life?

4 summer parties you need to host

Loving these FAB ideas/colors for Summer entertaining.

The fresh and yet understated color palette of this tablescape creates an impression of an simple elegance, offset by the rustic and sprigs of rosemary, and by the warm tones of organic white peach tarts and homemade whipped cream. LOVE the table cover!

Contrasted tones of yellow and aqua, accented with subtle Navajo touches of wildflowers and an understated  feather build a color concept that feels both festive and unexpected.

Strong and yet not over-dominant, cobalt blues and crisp whites stand the test of an outdoor environment already brimming with color. Give it a handmade touch by dyeing your own table linen and pillow covers.

For lavish summery decor, manifest elegance with less established colors and shapes. Bold, feminine blossoms offset angular, tapered candles; pale yellows and earthy oranges allow rich shades of emerald and teal to appear at the forefront. Graphic tablecloth, emerald, and dont even get me started on that chandy, this is MY kind of dinner party! Recreate a similar table cover using lighter-weight canvas fabric and food/natural dyes.
