Green Reigns Supreme

Every dining room deserves a little green.  Whether it be upholstery, drapery, a light fixture or a simple centerpiece, green ranks highly in my book.  Color theory classes and general knowledge of Feng Sui taught me that green is a relaxing, soothing color and slows your heart rate.  It's the perfect color for a room where you gather with loved ones and share a meal.  Especially if you're like me and only get the chance to actually sit down for dinner every few months.  

I'm on the hunt for dining chairs like these for a client kitchen table:


All it takes is a few simple touches to create a soothing effect.  You don't have to overdo it.  Less is more, my friends:




I love the soft green wallpaper juxtaposed with loud orange chairs.  Playfully chic, no?

Here are a few of my recommendations to spruce up your kitchen with green:

1. Lascala Green Chandelier $1,478/2. Dl Rhein Honeycomb Embroidered Pillow $104/ 
3. Kelly Green Bentwood Armchair $355/4. Society Social Letterpress Coasters $58-$174/5. Maid of the Forest Vintage Book $55 /6. Society Social Olive Greek Key Lumbar Pillow $85 /7. Green Ikat Dinnerware $10/ 8. Bungalow 5 Chloe Armchair $738/9. Lacquer Secretaire $Price Upon Request


That Lascala chandelier needs in my life.  And who doesn't love a little lacquer?  It's the perfect time to stock up on your holiday entertaining supplies and appropriate decor.  Monogrammed coasters, anyone?
XOXO, Sam
