Green - the new hue

Green with envy, he's green in experience...why is so much negativity attributed to the beautiful colour green?  For me green is peaceful and fresh, and it just plain makes me feel good.  From apple, aquamarine, beryl, bice, blue-green, chartreuse, fir, forest, grass, greenish-blue, jade, kelly, lime, malachite, mint, moss, olive, pea, peacock, pine, sage, sap, sea, spinach, verdigris, vert, viridian and willow.  I'll take it all!

The ever stylish Marie Antoinette obviously loved green and all that whooshing silk.  This beautiful french set of drawers is also a twist on the kelly green theme. 

I don't think I can ever look at wallpaper the same way after I'd seen deGournay silk panels.  This old french company excels in silken chinoiserie walls at nearly criminal costs - but how beautiful are they?
I'm sorry this 8 carat Emerald (below) one can get lost in!

  1. Hello lovely lady, thank- you for popping over and saying hi. I am very excited you found some new treasures at the garden centre. I just did a post on some of my green bits and bobs today....we must be thinking the same. Love that fern, the pot it is in is wonderful. Feels like ages since we bumped into each other....how did the white chair and cute little tables go? Cheers Katherine xxx
