The Green of Me

OK, I am now officially a day behind in my color postings...so move everything down a day, if you are keeping track, which I doubt, I wouldn't be if I were you...

OK, so on to Green, perhaps the most Spring color of all:


Green is a color I love but that I use more sparingly than my blues or pinks or whites or creams... It seems to be the small accent color around here a lot, the "punch" in the middle of all the pastels... a plate hanging on the wall, old books stacked together, a small throw pillow...




As much as I love a softer, near Robins Egg blue-ish green, when it comes to choosing green for my home, I tend to go for a lime-er hue. Not neon green, but always a little more intense,
a little brighter than you might expect in the "Land of Precious" (as Jeanetta has referred to my house in the past...)



I think that the pink and blue and the whites are my softer-sunnier- optimistic -mostly me- everyday side. The green... well the green is more my kick-bootie, take no prisoner-make it work-feisty side. And while I don't want that side to dominate, I do like for it's presence to be felt. Kinda keeps all the pink and blue from being too sweet, ya know?


So, do you like green?

    I love limey-green too & totally agree that a good green should have more ooomph than a pastelly Tiffany-blue. except that the trim in my kitchen cupboards are a pale version of a limey-geen ~ does that count??

    btw, I think I like your green post the best so far. I combined my blue & green day together to catch up :)

  2. Do I love green? What a silly question. I am OBSESSED with it. I have been even since childhood. LOVE green. Green and I are connected somehow.

    Oh, and I do not use green sparingly. And my favorite shade of green is Kelly, or Emerald.

    Oh, I like spring green, and grass green, and celery, and sage...and...and..
    LOL. BTW, I made a whole post a few days ago, dedicated to my love of green.

  3. Oooh I love green! We have a lot of pink going on around here with 2 little girls... I love mixing pink with green. I agree that it adds that little bit of ooomph.

    These color posts have been great!!!

  7. I'm drawn to the same kind of green, even painted my study that color. I love the nature inspired freshness of it.

  8. Green is the color of envy, which is how I feel when I read about you and Jeanetta and hubbies having a weekend in HS together, or when I read about you two working together or see pictures on Tricia's blog of all the old gals. I do not yet have that group here. WAAHH!!
    I actually like the kick-bootie, take no prisoner-make it work-feisty side of you -- it works! I would never want you to be too sweet!

    Love ya!

  12. I should probably wear more green with my coloring, but I'm just not as attracted to it like I am red & aqua! LOL I did just post today about a new green collection I just bought...JADEITE green, to be exact!

  13. i do, i do, i do like green! not as much as blue, tho. unfortunately i squandered my blue post on such a boring, faded-blue photo.

    can't wait for choose-your-own-color day.
