Needing, Wanting, Loving: Green Walls

I'm back from another great weekend away in the Hamptons, so there's no Monday scaries here.  I want to keep the relaxing vibes going by discussing one of my favorite hues~ green!  The last few years, we have seen a resurgence of emerald green, especially on walls and kitchen cabinetry.  I love the richness of the color and the depth and mood it can add to a space:



But beyond emerald, I love green for it's versatility.  It can work in a variety of settings, and I love seeing interesting applications- like fun wallpaper or tinted grasscloth.  Farrow & Ball's Acanthus wallpaper makes this bathroom feel extra special:


I also love the olive-tinted wall treatment Charlotte Lucas used in this bedroom:


Farrow & Ball's Carriage Green in high gloss dresses up this office space:


Tory Burch's living room has become somewhat iconic for the rich emerald walls.  I love how nicely it mixes with the blue and gold gilt accents:


Another great green paint color is Farrow & Ball's Green Smoke, used here in a moody library:


A green wallpaper with a bit of striation adds texture and intrigue to this home office:


I'll always be a fan of lacquer, especially when it's done in a bright, bold color, like kelly green:


Or a more muted blue green:


Leave it to Jean-Louis Deniot to mix stone with a tasteful green hue.  The result is a library that feels both charming and cozy.


Green is the only color that I never tire of.  Whether it's layered with other greens in a space or only used as an accent color, I always find it appealing.  Which shade of green is your fave?
