Green is not usually a color I use much in my decorating, other than a plant here and there, but lately I've been seeing green used in some really pretty, inspirational ways. From painted furniture to kitchen cabinets, it can be used in every room in the house. And yes, it does feel like I'm cheating on my blue and white to post this. :-) But sometimes it's nice to get a glance at something fresh and a little different. 

Here are a few pieces that have been painted. This first one is gorgeous! I love the simplicity of the decorating on top, and the gold pulls are so pretty. It feels like the perfect combination of old and new.

The picture below inside the empty frame is a great idea.


I see dressers like this one all the time on FB Market Place. I need to remember how great they look when painted and given new life.

Swoon. I couldn't commit to this, but these next few kitchens and one bathroom that use green sure are stunning.

Any thoughts on upper and bottom cabinets being a different color like the one below?

Fabric is certainly an easy way to add the color green. Plus, so many other colors are easily combined with it.

I do have some green and white plates hanging in my kitchen, and like I said above, a live (and faux) plant or two, but that's about it for the green in my house. Have y'all used green in your home?



  1. Thanks for great share! I was searching for ideas for decorating with wood cabinets and this post was the first suggestion. I wanted to leave some gratitude for this lovely collection of kitchens, I definitely have some ideas now.

    1. Great! Glad it was helpful. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Just visited Florida and came home inspired to paint a spare room in Seedling green. I use this room for making artwork and already feel inspired and refreashed in it. I have shots of green here and there but have become greatly attracted to it lately. Thank you for your article.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Seriously? I’ve been decorating with shades of green my entire life. Definitely not this shades though. Emerald green and olive green are not as timeless as sage or the blue-green shades like turquoise or teal. They have there place though. I recently bought an Emerald green velvet chair for my office. It’s a light airy room filled with greens oranges, peach browns and a creamy carpet. It’s full of whimsy and the chair pulled it all together. I receive many compliments on the use of the color green in my home and how I mix it up with other colors. Also how it always looks on trend even though I’ve had many of my furnishings for years.

  4. Funny how our tastes evolve. Since publishing this post in 2018, I now have green in our primary bedroom. Just added green velvet curtains last month! :-)
