A POP of Green in a Neutral Room

If you follow my blog, you know I've been going to a more neutral color palate in my home.  The one thing I can't change in my living room is my sofa - it's only two years old and I do like it still.  It's green, but certainly not the emerald green Pantone pick for 2013.  But, like Tim Gunn says - "Make it Work"!  

So, I've been adding some POPS of green to my accessories throughout the room.

Dried hydrangeas with a green hue and a little green glass candle found at TJ Maxx.

This stunning butterfly pillow from Marshall's.

I made the fern prints last year with ferns from my garden.  You can read about it here.

This blown glass jar - another Marshall's find at $4.99!

Even the moss in my planters adds some color!

Finally - my cat, Oreo!   She's in her favorite nap spot on the green sofa.  When she is bright eyed (I couldn't get her to wake up for her photo shoot!!!)  her green eyes really POP!!!!

So, with the emerald green Pantone trend, are you adding a POP of green to your decor this year?  




  1. It's just beautiful, Doreen, a really pretty color of green!!!

  2. I'm a big fan of green! It's so fresh and clean. You can't go wrong with one of the most populat colors in nature!

  3. Green is my favorite coor so I loved this post! Every photo made me smile and I love the collage!

  4. I love the green! So pretty. I added pops of green to my bathroom. Your couch is a pretty green, it works for me ;-)

  5. Doreen,I especially loved seeing the green and whie butterfly pillow and the large blown glass jar. Isn't the sign that hangs above your couch green too? To me, the sign, regardless of color, is priceless!

  6. Beautiful, Doreen! The green gets me in the mood for spring :) Love the pops of color...very refreshing!
