T.G.I.F. ‘Thank Goodness It’s So Fabulous!’



It seems that the color green is making a strong appearance in both fashion and interior design this season!  Take a look at some of my favorite ways that the color is being boldly showcased!


“It’s So Fabulous!” GREEN SPACES of the Week: In this year’s July/August issue of Lonny magazine, several eye-catching rooms bathed in lovely shades of green were featured among its pages. Click the link to view the entire article and all of the pictures.

These window treatments look amazing blended with blue and white in this bedroom.

Green accent pillows carry the color scheme into other spaces such as the red room pictured here.

“It’s So Fabulous!”  GREEN FASHION of the Week: Another place that green has been cropping up is throughout the fashion scene. In fresh and fabulous shades for summer, green can be blended with a multitude of other colors to create marvelous combinations!

While I was searching for photos online about green fashion, I actually found an article in Real Simple Magazine that was about that very topic! Below are a few of the photos from that article mixed in with the others. However, if you would like to read the full article and view all of the photos from Real Simple, click the link above.

“It’s So Fabulous!”  GREEN ARRANGEMENT of the Week: Sometimes, a completely green arrangement is a fabulous choice for a space. Perhaps, there is already enough color in the room, and it simply needs the addition of some live greenery. In that case, it is important to consider the height of the foliage you select, as well as its texture. One way to add interest to an arrangement is by making it asymmetrical, while still providing a sense of cohesiveness. The arrangement below is one that I consider a particularly interesting example of this type of design. Notice all of the different types of leafy textures. There are a few flowers in muted colors inserted into the arrangement, but for the most part, the components are primarily green.  There is a description below the photo that describes how to style this arrangement with all of the plants used in its creation.

Use leafy Solomon’s seal (with its little white “bells”) as a foundation, loosely filling a column-shaped vase and extending from both sides. Nestle bright, velvety cockscomb deep in the middle, just off-center, like a buried treasure. Fill holes with spearmint and poppy pods. Add tall sweet pea vines, placing them to arc toward, not away from, the arrangement. Tuck fronds of wispy maidenhair fern around the bottom on one side to spill out and down, leaving plenty of space to show its delicate shape.

What are YOUR favorite green color combinations or ways to insert the color into your interior design?
NOW, GO HAVE AN “It’s So Fabulous!” DAY!
