I became addicted to Pinterest this weekend and found all manner of wondrous images of my all time favorite color…..green! So why not do a post on all things green. Few words just glorious images like the above collage I prepared for the blog! I will identify my own photos, some may be repeats (sorry!) but mostly they are pins I have saved and don’t have photo credits
I adore color samples, here one of Pantone’s green palettes, these are the greens that are the most attractive to me, however, I do love all greens!
The following quote is attributed to the book, Green: The History of a Color by Michael Pastoureau published by Princeton University Press (one of his series of books on color, I ordered mine immediately from www.amazon.com!!!!) “The color green is fickle, mutable, variously the color of love, youth, irresponsibility, but also madness, debauchery, and the underworld”.
From Carolyne Roehm www.carolyneroehm.com using an Ikat textile for her table setting, her “eye” is brilliant in all things, whether flowers, gardens or interiors.

I not only love this photo but want everything in it!!!! It is so me!
I could live in any of these rooms and take inspiration for not only the color and the weathered look of the rooms but all the details large and small.
Beautifully detailed tiles.
A magnificent garden path leading to a secluded nook.
The entrance to Monet’s home in Giverny

Can you believe this is a cabbage! It is amazing and HUGE, the shades of an almost metallic green are extraordinary, another shot from my Harbor Country weekend.
